Red Fox

Vulpes vulpes

The red fox is the last member of the dog family still wild in the UK. It is the size of a collie, with a huge bushy tail and large pointed ears. Its fur is a bright orange-red, with white chest and muzzle and darker legs and tip of tail. It lives in the countryside, hunting a range of small animals, but has also adapted to living in towns, scavenging in our bins for food scraps. You can see two pairs of red foxes at Wildwood, one by the entrance and one just past the badger enclosure. The best times to see them are just after 10 am and mid afternoon when they've been fed. If you can't see them, look through the viewing panes to their dens, they are often resting out of the sun.
