Foxes are pretty common in Torres del Paine. There are four foxes that tend to be seen around the hotel where were are staying. We've also noticed foxes near one of the spots on the road where tourists stop for photos. We've passed tourists in their van, stopped at this photo spot, taking photos of a nearby grey fox. On a hunch, Alex suggested we stop there and see if the foxes would appear. Sure enough, the foxes appeared within a minute. Apparently, despite the park regulations, the tour guides ensure the foxes' presence by giving them treats.

The photos are of a fox that was asleep and curled up on a particularly cold and windy day. Alex saw it near the trail and captured these photos.
