What's Inside of Fox's Mouth?


What's Inside of Fox's Mouth?

“Snrrf.” *crunching sound* *laughter* “Pant, pant…”

– Kamchatka fox

On September 8, a wayward fox found himself in a snafu when he snatched the camera of a few tourists to the peninsula of Kamchatka in the east of Russia. The tourists did not specify how they retrieved the camera, but retrieve it they did. You can watch the video (recommended for cuteness alone) here.
