Fox

Compiled by Bindu Misra; Illustrations by Amarjeet Malik

If there is one animal that lives by its wits then it is our very own Fox. Sheer ingenuity has made him a survivor literally. And it is due to its own dexterity that the Red or common fox is doing very well in Britain, North America and North Africa unlike itís cousins the wolf and the wild cat. Man is his only enemy. Ironically though, he still prefers to stay close to humans.







Fox, Earth facts for kids: 15_1.jpg The fox is the smallest member of the dog family, Canidae. They are agile predators that usually weigh under 7kg. They scavenge carrion, wild fruits and hunt small rodents, rabbits, birds and invertebrates. They hunt small prey sufficient to feed only one animal and hence are solitary predators who do not hunt in packs.
