Red fox in his hole by woxys Red fox in his hole by woxys
Wonderful and very light-coloured young male Red fox (vulpes vulpes, liska obecna) called Tomasek from ZOO Decin, Czech republic :D :aww: Tomasek was born in the wild, but was found alone, so he needed to be saved and rised by people, who finally moved him to the ZOO, where he happily lives with older female Masenka :heart:


I am very proud of this photo :oops: and as it has SLR quality, I sell it as a print - you can have original mug, mousepad or a coaster :D

FUR ON YOUR BACK IS BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS!
____________


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!

He is absolutely adorable. Interestingly, we had some foxes on my grandmother's farm who lived quite a long time. There was one big guy who showed up for six or eight years that I know of. My grandmother's farm was some what of a sanctuary, however. My mom also caught sight of a pair of huge bucks one time she was out riding. Things tended to last longer around there.
