First of all i would like to thank you for your comments on my last two uploads.
The fox is a remarkably adaptable and successful animal found, where food is plentiful, in almost every type of habitat. It is a success because it willing to eat almost anything and has become particularly adapt at surviving alongside man in farmland and urban areas.
The fox is unmistakable with its bushy tail, large ears and narrow muzzle.Coat colour can be extremely variable, usually reddish-brown on top with lighter underside, but much darker or silvery forms are not uncommon.
The mating season is December to February, when the vixon can be heard at night uttering its eerie, high pitched scream. Four or five cubs are born in the spring and the female fox stays with them in the earth for two weeks, fed by the dog fox. They remain with their mother until autumn when they disperse to find territories and mates of their own.
The life expectancy of the fox is short; 12-18 months in urban areas,(58% are killed on the roads) and rarely beyond 3 years in rural areas.
