animal canine carnivore close up

Foxes are found and seen all around the world from the tundra’s lands of North America to the coast of North Africa. These medium-sized animals are omnivores and are devised into 12 species within the genus Vulpes.

Foxes are closely related to the domesticated dogs we know today. They are linked into the canine phylogeny but diverge at a point to make them “true fox”. Foxes are not like domesticated dogs, however. Even though they are not of harm to humans, these animals are wild and when provoked it can lead to an attack. The living arrangements of Fox might take you by a surprise. Their dens are located underground and these animals are rarely seen during the day because they are nocturnal.
