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!

Interesting story. I wonder why he never figured out how to escape with her.

woxys Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013
they did escape with her! :D but they came back or were re-captured. Máša managed to escape the second time and refused to come back and the ZOO respects that, because she does not hunt any of kept animals :) and moreover, her babies (at least one) also managed to escape for the second time, but they came back from their own will, I think. Strange :-) but their exhibit is very natural, it is simply a fenced part of the forest, so although the fence is also underground, the animals somehow manage to leave! XD

Hmm. Maybe she is just a better hunter, so she is more comfortable with staying out.

Aaaws :'3 I wonder if he misses his dear mate. Do you know how the cubs are doing, by the way? I assume they are old enough to survive without their mother anyway ^^

yup, they are already some 2 years old, I think - and Máša STILL live in that ZOO, but she is free! :D she stay close to the fox cage, but she is a free animal. She allows the guy who saved her life to feed her from hand :aww:

I don't think I'd ever seen a red fox with such solid/clear black markings.

I agree! His fur is very pale and his snout markings are very large :nod:
