In order for the animals to navigate and run away, the sailors turned off the spotlight.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Ural atomic icebreaker crew shot polar foxes on the Yenisey. The video was published in the Telegram channel @atomflot_official.

The foxes arranged races in front of the ship. In the video, animals run at high speed. The polar explorers say that if the arctic fox in the dark falls into the light of the ship’s spotlight, it loses orientation and will run in the beam without turning:

“Sailors have to turn off the spotlight so that the animal can navigate and leave the path of the nuclear power vehicle”.

Earlier, the Ural atomic icebreaker near the Novaya Zemlya archipelago was studied by a polar bear – perhaps he was attracted by delicious smells from the ship kitchen, as well as his brother, who was filmed by the Vaigach atomic icebreaker’s captain in November 2022 near the Sibiryakov island. This Is Taimyr also told about the blue-eyed albino polar fox Tosruy’s trip along Taimyr, he ran 250 kilometers.
