Blue Fox (Vulpes lagopus, before Alopex lagopus)
Blue fox breeding began in Finland in the 1920s. The bluish-grey variant of the arctic fox, blue fox is the most common fur animal farmed in Finland. Its coat has a very light tone in the winter, while it is rather dark grey in the summer.
Farmed blue foxes can also be partly or entirely white; depending on their genotype, these variants are called white or shadow foxes.
Farmed blue foxes descend from mated Alaska and Greenland blue foxes.
- In the summer, a full-grown female weighs 7–8 kg and male 9–10 kg. In the autumn, blue foxes weigh more than 10 kg.
- The length of the body from snout to the start of the tail is 65–72 cm
