Fun facts

1. Foxes are members of the dog family. A female fox is called a “vixen”, a male fox is called a “dog fox” and baby foxes are called “pups”, “kits” or “cubs”.

2. When fox pups are born, they are unable to see, hear or walk, and their mother must take good care of them. When the pups are young, their father hunts and brings food back for the family.

3. A group of foxes is called a “skulk” or a “leash”.

4. Foxes eat just about anything, including berries, worms, spiders and small animals such as mice and birds.

5. Foxes have whiskers on their legs and face, which help them to navigate.

6. Foxes dig underground dens where they take care of their cubs and hide from predators.

7. Their pupils are vertical, similar to a cat, helping them to see well at night.

8. Foxes have excellent hearing. Red foxes can reportedly hear a watch ticking 40 yards away!

9. Foxes stink, their funny ‘musky’ smell comes from scent glands at the base of their tail.

10. Unlike their relatives, foxes are not pack animals. When raising their young, they live in small families in underground burrows. Otherwise, they hunt and sleep alone.
