Island Fox

$10.00$100.00

Channel Island’s National Park is a unique park. The islands offer visitors a first hand glimpse at what coastal Southern California would relatively look like untouched without any human involvement. The islands were initially part of mainland North America closer to where San Diego lies today. Due to plate tectonics and a long period of time, the islands migrated to the northwest and distanced themselves off the coast. The result was the creation of an ecosystem with plants and animals unique to these islands.

This photo is of an Island Fox. It’s a descendant from the typical Gray Fox. There are two sub-types of this fox and this one in particular only resides on the Santa Cruz Island. There is only one other island that houses these foxes. Because of the distance from the mainland and lack of larger prey, these foxes are much smaller than the Gray Fox. The smaller bodies allow the Island Fox to survive off smaller rodents and drier conditions.

This particular photo was shot near the Scorpion Ranch Campground along the Cavern Point and Potato Harbor Trail. If you can, check out the island and the hike.
