INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Red fox (vulpes vulpes)
Location: red fox is native to North America, whole Europe, whole Asia, north Africa and it was introduced to Australia
Size: 100 cm long body + 45 cm long tail, 40 cm high weight: 12 kg
Diet: red foxes are omnivorous and are highly opportunistic, so they eat almost everything from small insects to cranes. Red foxes hunt insects, worms, fish, birds, mice, rabbits, crayfish, baby deers. But they eat also fruit (apples, blackberries...) and plants.
Conservation status: Least Concern (the most common carnivora)
Interesting facts: red fox can hide its food to find it later | usually five cubs are born blind and helpless in the burrow | foxes have many colour variations: usually – ginger-red, but also black or silver, Unfortunately, red fox is kept by fur farms and some ----- torture them just to gain their fur. Red foxes are also hunted by so called ,,sportmen“ | red foxes suffer from rabies | red fox is considered to be vermit | red foxes produce pretty weird sounds XD | foxes in the wild live only some 4 years, but they can reach 12 years in captivity
Enemies: golden eagles, gray wolves, cougars, lynxes, coyotes, badgers, wolverines
Legend: foxes play important role in many myths and legend. Due their inteligence, they have become symbol of slyness and cunning. They are also very popular animals, who have role in many fairy tales. In the Czech republic, author Rudolf Tesnohlidek wrote very famous book about very clever hand-rised vixen called Bystrouska. I loved that book and also it funny happy end!

Its not a wild animal lol. You would have a lot harder time getting a decent image if it where wild. Stating that it is wild also makes you loose credibility as a photographer, lying to the viewer... I have no respect for liars.

go and study the definition of "DOMESTICATED", it is definitely something COMPLETELY different from "finding a wild animal, catch it and keep it in a flat". Domestication is a process. Once more, go and study the DEFINITION OF DOMESTICATION.

at second, I CLEARLY say this was taken in a station for handicaped animals, so only person who does not understand the meaning of this sentense can have some problem.

at third, STUDY the definition of dA categories. This picture belongs to category WILD ANIMALS.

at fourth, APOLOGIZE.

I have no respect for people like you, who are trying to teach without being able to study and understand the basic categories.

The meaning of domestic pertains to the animal been tame or domesticated. The meaning of an animal been domesticated means that the animal is in contact with or living close to humans and has lost its natural ability to survive in the wild and relies on human care to survive.

The term can also be used to describe cattle which I think is what you are hinting at but the word does not apply to just that.

There are wild dogs then there are domestic dog's which live at home.

I don't need to apologize when clearly I am not the one with the misunderstanding of the word "DOMESTICATED".

The definition of a wild animal is an animal: living in a state of nature; not tamed or domesticated: a wild animal; wild geese.

Furthermore Your improper use of the category and word is misleading and gives false information to the viewer. If your going to educate someone at least understand what you are trying to educate them about.

woxys Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012
you are TWENTY YEARS old. You should be already old enough to find a definition and to understand it. Once more, domesticated means something different than what you say.

You mistake the right meaning of "wild" for FERAL. Those are FERAL dogs. Dog (Canis lupus familiaris) is a DOMESTIC breed. However, some dogs, which are f.e. living in the street, are FERAL.

Feral animal is a term used for animal of domesticated species, which is living in the wild.

Domesticated animal is a term used for a species/breed, which came through the years of domestication, which means a process of making one species (not ONE animal) depending on humans.

Wild means completely wild animal.

Tame wild animal means wild animal, which is somehow willing to have contact with humans.



So, once again and SLOWLY, to make you understand: THIS. FOX. IS. A. WILD. ANIMAL. WHICH. IS KEPT. IN. CAPTIVITY. ITS. SPECIES. DID. NOT. COME. THROUGH. YEARS. OF. DOMESTICATION. SO. IT. IS. WILD. ANIMAL.


right now GO and find me a definition of dA category of Domesticated animals and then the definition of WILD ANIMALS category. GO AND DO IT NOW. believe me, you will be surprised with your findings. You are incredibly low person, because you are STILL teaching although you did not spend a MINUTE to find out the definition of dA categories. Go and do it now, baby. EDUCATE YOURSELF.

That is really sad - 20 years and still not being able to understand the meaning of simple sentenses.
