The silver fox is a melanistic form of red fox

Fun Facts
  • A fox’s den is normally a burrow underground, also known as an ‘earth’, but they can also live above ground in a cosy hollow.
  • You can often hear the mating calls, which is a sharp, high-pitched shrieking/screaming noise, which can sound quite terrifying.
  • The fox does not chew its food. Instead it uses its carnassial or shearing teeth to cut the meat into manageable chunks.

Least Concern: Lowest risk; does not qualify for a higher risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
