Very interesting info on Foxes, fascinating stuff.

I am pretty sure I have more rods than the average human actually. I am blue-eyed, color-blind, and MUST wear sunglasses in the sun (it's actually painful without). But I have incredible night-vision. Like I can spot something moving in total darkness instantly, and my depth perception is way better at night.

a splendid thread voidhawk. I occasionally venture to an isolated plateau in the lake district to watch the roe deer and foxes. tis a great experience watching the cubs messing around and leaping about. a protected area it is so no danger of these families being shot thankfully.

Thanks for the thread OP!

I came in expecting to read some kind of rant about Fox news. I leave pleasantly surprised.

Foxes are amazing animals.

Well, I saw A Fox making sandwich in Chernobyl and now this...So wonderful.
Don't have words to express this feeling, but damn, this is awesome. And they are intelligent, too.

Ylvis - The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?) [Official music video HD]

"Do you communicate in morse?"

Bee's also have mysteries involving overcoming frequency and flight, foxes infared and see the magnetic field. Pistol shrimps release both bubble and hz soundwave to implode molecules and produce temps like sun's corona, yet we destroy nature, ignore its mysteries/wisdom and allow the wealthy few to murder/exploit Gaia for profit?

Don't think we're a bright species!

We were never left alone here, and this makes me so grateful. The secret of flight, of real cosmic technology, found in the living library all around us, mysteries and angels surround. A loving parent does not even time us out in what many of us deserve, but in the womb of a beautiful abundant mother, filled with all the mysteries and answers we seek if we honor our environment and stop exploiting our home world.

Though fallen, tears and temper tantrums, our timeout playpen isn't the corner, it's a wonderous, breathtaking gardens, filled with information at every turn, and if we pay attention, the way back home. Filled with nature's angels evrywhere. And I'm so grateful.

The arctic fox is one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet.

The irony of fox culling is sadly laughable- "This animal is killing and eating an animal that I was going to kill and eat so therefore it must die!"

Population control is the key and people need to realize that even if an animal is considered a pest they are still an animal.

Very informative thread. I have been lucky enough to see quite a few while backpacking up in Yosemite National Park over the years. A lot of granite landscape up there so you get lucky. ~$heopleNation

interesting. many animals also have deposits of ferrous oxide in the ethmoid bone (the bony part of the nose). This ferrous oxide responds to magnetism and is present in the human, but I think humans have lost touch with this sensory organ.

Yeah people out here in occupied California like to trap Racoons, and then animal control puts them down.

Why do these imbeciles do this? Apparently they don't like the Racoons digging worms out of their precious lawns. The Golf Courses have the same policy, idiots.

Forget about the fact that a lot of these properties exist right next to the woods. As if they can catch and kill them all, clueless.

When I was in my 20's I ran a small business for a short time, without a license, where I would trap Racoons for people who had pest problems in their neighborhoods.

Only I would take them to the nearby Regional Park and release them so they could live a happy life. No reason to kill them for just trying to survive. ~$heopleNation

I hope you can hang on to that night vision.
When I was younger, I too had very good night vision, and hated bright sunlight, and blue eyes like you so maybe something in that?
As I've gotten older (approaching 60) my night vision has deteriated greatly! I now HAVE to wear specs to drive at night.

Hi fakedirt.
Do you refer to the lake district in the uk?
Many many years ago while motorcycling to visit a friend; who'd gone to work at Hiesham (spelling?) powerstation, I somehow took a wrong turn and found myself in the middle of the lake district on a very crisp spring morning. I stopped on the top of a hill to try to get some warmth back into my body as I'd ridden all night from down south. I watched the sun burn the fog away revealing some of the most gorgeous countryside I've ever seen.
I need to find an excuse to visit that area again before the reaper comes looking for me

Foxes dont steal! They are simply hunting, feeding to survive, just like we do

As are baby lambs, minutes old...just learning to walk on those wobbly legs. Then, in the dark of night, come the predator fox. Hopefully the ewes are quicker.

If you have every witnessed their carnage, you would think less of how beautiful they are. Chickens don't stand a chance.



I'm with you. One fox made quick work of my chickens (during the day) last year. They will kill 3-4 at a time and bury the extras for later. I think they're beautiful but when I see one on my property, I want to kill it. Problem is, I can't set around all day waiting for a Fox. I am going to check out the dogs. I was thinking a Great Pyrenees but they eat a lot and are expensive. The Patterdales sound efficient. I'm definitely going to check them out.

Most animals are beautiful. But when they literally eat you out of house and home, jeopardizing your food source and self sufficiency, then it's time to look beyond the beauty and think about stabilizing your living situation. I wouldn't be happy about it because Foxes are really beautiful, but I would feel solid in my decision. There are thousands of rabbits around, they can hunt those! My dogs catch them all the time.

Thanks for the post! I've always loved foxes.
When I was a child we had both gray and red foxes in the woods behind our house. By the time I was grown a trapper had moved into the community and was doing illegal trapping. The foxes disappeared for many, many years.
Just a few months after we moved into our new home (built on the old homesite) we saw a pair of red foxes trotting through the yard. I began to research them to see what we could do to make them welcome. (We don't raise chickens.
)
My research showed that they utilize up to 5 different dens while raising their young. We began building brush piles for them on the perimeters of the property. Apparently they use our facilities during the spring and summer but move during the winter. Last year we installed outdoor cameras to watch for them. The last sight we caught of them was during the first snow we experienced last October. No foxes appeared again until late February, when the male showed up. A couple of weeks later the female appeared.
Since we began watching them on camera we've had a lot of good laughs. They truly are clowns in some ways. I've seen them playing with our big male cat (who thinks he is a dog) in a game of chase that scared me when it began. But it was simply a game of chase, fox chasing cat, cat turns then and chases fox. I've seen the same with a fox and possum. The fox chases the possum for a while then the possum chases the fox 'round and 'round the tree.
The funniest thing we saw was the night the fox came trotting up while the possum was eating some scraps we had tossed out for them. My first thought was that the possum would run away. Nope. Old Pokey Possum just glanced up at the fox and went back to eating. The fox tried going closer. No response from the possum. The fox circled, again and again, going in closer each time---only to be ignored. Finally, he moved in close enough to bip the possum's tail, not bite, he just bipped with his nose, which got the possum's attention and got a big ole HISSSSS showing his mouth full of pointy teeth. If looked for all the world like Pokey was saying, "Go away boy, you bother me." before he went back to his meal. Fox just kept circling but Pokey didn't give up until he was done. Then he ambled away and let Fox have the left-overs.
One of the curious things we've observed is that when the female finishes eating, she squats and has a pee over the exact spot. One morning I went out to find a bowl with what looked like urine in it. When we watched the video from the night before we saw her squat over the bowl when she finished eating the contents. The male simply marks a post in the yard every time he trots through.
We're now looking forward to seeing the family they will raise this year.
