Do Foxes Get Any Cuter Than This?

Posted by Richard Conniff on December 8, 2016

I’m in Beijing, where I spent most of the day talking about pterosaurs at the motherlode of recent pterosaur discovery, the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology. Afterward, I went across the street and saw these guys. They’re corsac foxes,  new to me, denizens of central Asia into Mongolia. Sorry, I don’t normally indulge in cute animal videos, but these guys put the “A” in “adorable.”

Also saw a young panda amusing itself by clumsily climbing a tree trunk. Nice end to a jet-lagged day.
