The red fox, with its bushy tail and dog-like snout and face is an efficient nocturnal creature which has forty eight sub-species with different color variations.  A fox's den is usually in a burro underground, but they may also live above ground in a hollow.  A fox is generally a solitary animal, however, during breeding season, the dog or male fox will support the vixen or female fox by hunting and bringing food for the family.  Vixens are occasionally aided in rearing her cubs by a sister of female from a previous litter.  A cubs' eyes and ears open after two weeks of birth.  After four weeks time, they will emerge from their dens.  When a cub hunts, they will target and catch small rodents with a high playful pounce.  This is one of the first techniques a cub will learn when hunting.  A fox has whiskers on its face, much like a dog or cat, unlike these other animals, they also have them on their legs.  These whiskers will help them find their way.  A fox can clime a tree, and do so often, they are known to perch on low branches.  A fox is a great night hunter.  Behind the light sensitive cells in a foxes eyes, lies another layer called the tapetum lucid which reflects light back through the eye, doubling the intensity of images received by the fox.  Their eyes will glow green when light is shone at them at night.  A fox does not chew its food.  Instead, it uses its teeth to tear meat into manageable pieces, swolling these pieces whole.
