Red Fox

The red fox is found in Europe and Asia and has also been introduced to Australia. It has a short lifespan, only 18 months to 2 years. The Red Fox is mostly nocturnal, although it will sometimes venture out in the day. Unlike other mammals, it hears low-frequency sounds very well. It can hear small animals digging underground and will dig in the dirt or snow to catch prey. They are carnivores and stalk prey, much like a cat. The fox doesn’t usually use a den and will often sleep in the open, wrapping its tail around it, to keep warm. Fox hunting has been a sport for many centuries and became a traditional sport of the nobility. Red foxes are still widely persecuted as pests, with human-caused deaths among the highest. Too me foxes are beautiful animals and I always enjoy painting them.
