White Color Phase of the Swift Fox, Vulpes velox

Jan F. Kamler, Warren B. Ballard


While live-trapping Swift Foxes (Vulpes velox) in northwestern Texas, we captured and radio-collared a Swift Fox that exhibited a white pelage and light blue eyes. Although white color phases and light blue eyes have been reported for other canid species, this is the first documentation for Swift Foxes.
