Common Name: Red Fox
Scientific Name: Vulpes vulpes
Habitat: Open woodlands with brushy areas and a dependable water supply.
Diet: Mainly carnivorous—mice, shrews, moles, young rabbits, birds,
young deer, sheep, pigs, beetles, grasshoppers, and fruit in season.
The den of the red fox is frequently a converted woodchuck burrow that takes advantage of the multiple exits created by the original inhabitant. Red foxes will dig their own dens or make use of hollow logs as well.
