live on large territories, which they mark by scent -
urine or musk from several glands on their body. In a
town, foxes can also occupy a smaller territory or even
accept other foxes in their territory. Foxes may share
their territories with wolves and eagles, they sometimes
even follow wolves to catch leftovers from their prey.
Coyotes, however are avoided by foxes. Wolves, coyotes,
lynx and eagles are his natural enemies and may kill him
when they find him -- to save their own territories. The
eagle even kills foxes for food.
Foxes can be found from the Arctic tundra (Arctic fox)
to city center (Red fox). The red fox is the best known
fox, he lives in woods as well as in towns, where he searches
garbage bins for food. Foxes are interesting because they
seem to have characteristics of both dogs and cats. Some
of their cat-like characteristics include: vertical slit
eyes, partially retractable claws, light body weight,
and a stalking and pouncing style of hunting. Foxes are
even good tree climbers, especially the gray fox.
