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!

I do not think she was sad - but she wanted to jump on some kind of platform :D she longed a lot to do it, but I was standing too near, watching her :D so she hesitated if she really should jump - that's why she looks sad :D

100 cm long? good grief! I didn't know foxes were so big o.O The only live ones I've seen where usually running away in the woods ;)
Anyway, another great shot of a beautiful wild animal :love:

ona totiž staršně ráda přeskovala elektrický plot (jo, fakt! XD) a šmejdila po zídce, na které již byla postavena skleněná stěna pro návštěvníky XD jenže u té zdi jsem stála já a ta lištička byla nervózní, protože tam chtěla vyskočit, ale nechtěla být tak blízko :D

reintroduced to Australia? let me assure you, the red fox was never a native of Australia...
Reply
:iconwoxys:
woxys Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2009
I know :) it has never been original home for red fox :)
I just found out this word which should mean, that foxes were brought to Australia by people.
It ,,introduced" better word? Because I was also surprised, when there was that ,,re" in this word, which means doing something again..

for some reason the title reminds me of the part where the fox ate the Gingerbreadman in the story.
