An Andean fox rests its forepaws on a rock and looks into the camera. This picture was taken high up on Ecuador’s Pappallacta Pass, more than 10,000 feet above sea level.
Like its vulpine cousins the world over, the Andean fox is a great survivor. It needs so little water to live that it can even wander through the Atacama Desert in Chile, where several spots get zero inches of rain per year.
