Meeting a fox family

Juvenile foxes

Yesterday I had the opportunity to capture some red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) again. They are the largest of the true foxes, as well as being the most geographically spread member of the carnivores, being distributed across the entire northern hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, Central America, and the steppes of Asia.

Foxes are very social, and groups are, as said above, always led by a pair. Their youngsters stay around to take care of the new kids every time.

I saw at least 6 of them, where their hierarchy was clearly noticeable. One couple, the leaders and some juveniles where present to take care of the rest of the family, some cups from a couple of months old.

Enjoy the pictures.

Take care.
Willi
