This week we’re focusing on the Red Fox for fact friday!
The Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) is definitely an overlooked species, widely distributed across the UK in urban and rural areas. The Red Fox has a very rich history in association with humans. They have been hunted, worn and used for entertainment for hundreds of years. Nowadays we mostly see them lurking in our gardens or hear their loud mating screeches at night.
They are a very intellectual and adaptable species able to colonize the majority of Habitats across the UK. They will mostly try and make a burrow underground which is called an ‚earth‘.
Due to human activity they have mostly become night time predators and have whiskers not only around their faces but also on their legs to help them navigate and hunt their prey.
