About 

RED FOX

RED FOX has a long history of association with humans, having been extensively hunted as a pest and furbearer for many centuries, as well as being represented in human folklore and mythology. 

 

People use the phrase “sly as a fox” for a reason. Foxes are intelligent in ways that matter to them: finding food, surviving in ‘ weather extremes, outwitting predators, and protecting their young. They’re brighter than most, but not all, dog breeds. 

Red foxes have excellent hearing—they can hear rodents digging miles underground. These animals have more than 20 different calls. A group of foxes is called a skulk or a leash and Kits stay with their parents for about seven months.
