This is a white morph red fox, not an arctic fox. As noted in the question, this fox has larger, more pointy ears than an arctic fox, and the second picture shows it to have a longer muzzle as well.

Other eucalypts (Eucalyptus and Corymbia spp.) have similar growth forms. The silhouette is obviously stylised and appears to have less foliage than a real eucalypt in order to make the profile neater. ...
