Fox Photos (fotos) Friday!

17 Aug

Random pictures of foxes!  I am not the photographer of any of these pictures, those credits are below the photo with a link to the source where they were found.

We’ll actually start things off with a video that’s rather informative of the different calls foxes have.  Some are downright eerie.

In this video, you will learn a few different fox calls and sounds, and what they mean. Foxes can make up to more then 40 calls and sounds; contact calls, and interaction calls. Foxes are normally quiet animals, and their calls are mostly heard durning the mating season when foxes are calling out to each other and fighting over territory. Fox cubs are very quiet, and only make sounds when they are playing, fighting, or nursing. Most of the time, fox calls are mistaken for the call of another animal.

Fox at Bear Country USA, South Dakota (via wayberlee). As said in the original posting by the photographer: “Oh my god, I died when I took this picture. I was so upset before I took this picture because all of the pictures I took of wolves came out blurry, but when I saw this fox and took a clear picture, I almost cried in happiness.”

And, just because, a wonderful photo of Caracal kittens.

The Caracal is distributed over Africa, the Middle East, Pakistan and India. Its chief habitat is dry steppes and semideserts, but it also inhabits woodlands, savannah, and scrub forest. They generally prefer open country,
as long as there is sufficient cover, in the form of bushes and rocks, from which to ambush prey.
Its life expectancy in the wild is 12 years, and 17 years in captivity. The caracal may survive without drinking for a long period — the water demand is satisfied with the body fluids of its prey. Since it is also surprisingly easy to tame, it has been used as a hunting cat in Iran and India. (click link to view facebook group)
