Two new furry faces have just taken up residence at the B.C. Wildlife Park in Kamloops.

The two marble foxes, Raven and McCoy, are ready to greet guests in their new home, according to a post on the wildlife park’s Facebook page.

The post states the foxes came from a seizure by the SPCA and the Humane Society. They are about four years old and have bonded with their primary caretaker at the park.

The wildlife park says marble foxes are not found in the wild and are a result of the selective breeding of red foxes. Each marble fox has individual variances, and Raven has much more black on her than McCoy.

Raven and McCoy are in a newly renovated habitat neighbouring Robert the bobcat.

If you want to visit the new residents, the park asks that guests keep their voices down and avoid viewing them in large groups, to help them become accustomed to their new habitat, and to people.

McCoy will be living in a newly renovated habitat with Raven.
