The Red Fox
Vulpes vulpes

The red fox is found in Canada from coast to coast. Resembling a small, slender dog, it is a shy, nervous animal, and, for the most part, it tries to remain hidden from view. Unlike the dog, it is equipped with furred foot pads.
Foxes dig their three to nine metre long dens in sandy or gravely soil with two or three entrances. They are conscientious parents and remain together as family units until autumn when the pups disperse. Their winter diet consists mainly of small mammals such as mice, squirrels, and rabbits. In the summer months, insects, crayfish, and vegetable matter play a more important part in their feeding habits. They are preyed upon chiefly by coyotes and bobcats.

Special thanks to Luc for the inspiration! I love his fox work so I had to try and get some of my own.

Picture was taken at ecomuseum, a great place to visit.
