The Red fox (scientific name : Vulpes vulpes) is the most commonly known fox. When someone says fox, you will most likely think of the Red fox.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Red fox has orange-red fur. The females are called vixens, and the males are called reynard or dogs. Baby Red foxes are called kits.

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

Diet[edit | edit source]

A Red fox's diet would be of small rodents, rabbits, and birds. Even insects and plants will do. Red foxes are omnivores. So they eat plants, but mostly meat.

Territorial behaviour[edit | edit source]

Red foxes are territorial, so they have a territory. If you enter a Red fox's territory, the leader will most likely growl at you, or try to bite. Of course, a fox's bite won't be a painful as a bear's or a wolf's, but it will still hurt, so stay out!

Habitat[edit | edit source]

Red foxes live up north, you can find them in Europe, and some places in Canada. But they do not go as far north as arctic foxes do, they stay a little further south.

Relationships with humans[edit | edit source]
