This is an arctic ground squirrel caught by a fox in Kamchatka. This fox was living next to me during a year I spent in a remote ranger station in Kronotsky Nature Reserve. I called her Alisa.

At this time in summer 2011 she already has 4 cubs, check this photo for a portrait of her with one of them http://500px.com/photo/20139041. There are several more photos of Alisa in a set called Alisa.

And about her catch... Well, it is arctic ground squirrel, several previous photos on my profile are about them. They are amazing animals.
