Is not this world too wild for me? by woxys Is not this world too wild for me? by woxys
Baby Red fox (vulpes vulpes, liska obecna) from ZOO Decin, Czech republic.


No, this is not Terezka - but funny fact is, that this is a baby born to a vixen called Máša. Like Terezka, also Máša was saved by those nice people I know, who care also for two silver foxes. Máša got very ill when she was young. Those nice people spent LOT of money for a treatment. While her mate, Ouško, died, Máša was saved. And although she seems to be smaller (I think it is a result of an illness), she connected with a young male Tomášek and got a litter of kits :D this is one of the babies!

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!
