Fox Family Tree by Alannah-Hawker Fox Family Tree by Alannah-Hawker
A slightly weird upload today! This image shows how all the foxes I follow are connected. Knowing all their family connections is an amazing part of watching them. Hopefully this family tree helps others understand the foxes I follow a bit more. All the foxes are completely wild and free.

Nice.

Though, um, it piqued my curiosity on one thing: Would you have the time to brief us how well your relationships with the foxes? Much as the foxes are wild, I still suspect some will probably tolerate you, some probably are okay with approaching you, some flee on sight etc :D Or if that's too much, just give tell me how the majority of these foxes feel about you :D

Always happy to talk about the foxes! :)

They each have different personalities, which tend to reflect how they act with me. Obviously the shy foxes are quite cautious of me, whereas the bolder foxes don't tend to be too bothered with me. Though I do build a relationship with each fox.

So Jack for example, I watched her since she was born, so she has seen me since her very first looks out of the den, so to her I am almost just part of the family, as I've always been there. This means my relationship with her is very good, in the summer when im gardening she would appear and come and lie down right next to me and go to sleep, she was very at ease with me. Even when she had her own cubs she let them run around me without a care, she even left them with me and left a few times, like I was babysitting!!

Then you get other foxes that are just naturally more caution, Monster for example. I watched her since she was a cub too, but her personality has always been more cautious. I guess that's because she was never the dominant cub in the little (unlike Jack, who was the dominant cub).  As she has that shy personality, she has always been a little more wary of me. She will happily come in the garden while I'm there, but she will always keep a distance and will always be slightly aware of me just in case.

I think it's really a personality thing though, as then we have Schofe (our new male fox) He's been here for a little bit now, but he turned up as an adult and took the territory. From the day he arrived he really wasn't very bothered about me being in the garden with him, even though he had no idea who or what I was. Since then he has got to know me and is even more comfortable in my presence now. So comfortable that if I go out of a night and walk around the streets, it only takes him a few minutes to hear me and he follows me like a dog! He's very odd!

So yeah, they all are very different, but I guess it's the same with cats and dogs and even humans! It's just a personality thing. It's always interesting to learn their personalities though and try and get to 'know' them a little. :)

(Sorry that's a bit long, I can go on and on and on about the foxes haha! :giggle: )

No problem, in fact, that makes your relationships with the foxes sound all the sweeter.

Unfortunately they lose quite a few cubs each year :( I try and help them as much as I can, I've caught about 6 foxes and had them treated and released them back. But sometimes I just can't help them, it's usually the roads that are the problem for the cubs :(

Yay!!!  Thank you so much for posting this, Alannah!  After you mentioned that you had this info on your website, I went to view this graphic a few times.  This version is so nice and big that even my eyes can see it without straining.  Thanks to you, big smiles on my face today! :D :D :D

They sure do, just like us. :)   I think the current size of the family tree image on your site is large enough for most people to see.  It's old farts like me who need a bigger version.  :D

It does seem to, I hadn't much noticed that before. I have heard that before being born the male foxes are given more nutrition, so are larger than the females when born (how true that is im not sure!). Perhaps this carries on as they raise them? Though the deaths tend to be from the roads, so I guess that is just down to how smart/lucky they are

this is great! i wish i could do something like this. i know is kinda sad (for the ones that have died and the others that have moved on) but i mean, this is really something beautiful, you have seen a full fox family grow and you'll probably continue with it watching the next generations of cubs grow and create their own families.

Another thing, yes, it helps a lot to understand the relationship between the foxes you follow, thanks so much! ^-^

It has been amazing to watch :) (Smile) The fox it all started with (Jack), I actually watched grow up from a baby too. Then she unfortunately became very ill and had sever mange so I had to catch her and she was treated and released back, so there's always been quite a strong bond there.. Knowing none of that family tree would exist if I hadn't helped her is kind of amazing :) (Smile)
Nature can be cruel and its sad to have found some of the dead.. But I help them all where I can to try and give them the best chance :) (Smile) Hopefully the memories of some of them can live on in my pictures and stories a little.

aww you've been beside her all her life <3 that's so cute 

Me and my mother whenever we spot a hurt animal don't think it two times to save it, it feels great to be able to give a second chance when nature won't give it but sometimes is difficult and it requires a lot of time, care and patience.


It's true that a little part of their stories will always live in your photographs, i'm sure they're worth your time.

(sorry if my english is bad >-<)

I agree with you, whenever I see a hurt animal I just have to help them :) I work at a wildlire rescue, so I've been lucky enough to help raise fox cubs, feeding them with a babies bottle, so cute! It takes a lot of time, and you get no sleep as you have to feed them in the night, but it's so worth it knowing you're helping them go back to the wild :)

Haha it's okay, your English is pretty good!

it is totally worth.

i want to become member of the animal shelter and the animal brigade of my town. Here we don't have exotic animals like foxes (i wish there were ;^; they are my favorite animal), we only have wild bunnies and turtles :v but there are a lot of abandoned domestic dogs and cats and i want to help to give them new families :3
