Fox Information

The fox is the smallest member of family Canidae, which also includes wolves, jackals, and domestic dogs. It can be found in many habitats (Arctic tundra, desert, forest areas or city centers), and has adapted very well to living near humans.

Foxes have short legs, an elongated narrow muzzle, erect triangular ears, a thick fur and a long tail. They can live close to human habitat without being easily noticed, but are usually wary of humans. The most common species of the fox is the red fox (Vulpes vulpes).
