At our school we study Italian. Volpe is Italian for fox and I think it suits this cute little character. We used Polldaddy to collect our votes as to which animal would be our pet for 2017. As you can see, the fox was followed closely by the lion cub and the ferret! Perhaps they can be our pets for later in the year. Make sure you feed Volpe and give him lots of loving care by exercising him and letting him smell the flowers he loves!
