New Arctic Fox at Ross Park Zoo
5/5/2013 (Updated 10:53:51 PM)BINGHAMTON -- The Ross Park Zoo is bringing you a piece of the arctic this summer.
The zoo welcomed its newest addition this weekend: August, an arctic fox. She is the size of a pet dog or cat, and is shedding her white coat for the summer. Zookeepers say she is a hit with visitors.
"August is very friendly and curious. He comes right up to the wire to greet people. He's very interested in what's going on. He's a bit shy and hesitant right now because this is a brand new exhibit for him, but he's settling in nicely," said Elise Newman, a keeper at the Ross Park Zoo.
You can meet August any day of the week from 10 am to 5 pm at the Ross Park Zoo.
