RED FOX HABITAT

From the icy tundra of Russia to the sprawling cities of Europe; from Asia, North America and North Africa to Australia, our red fox has adapted to the widest variety of habitats imaginable. The survival of Vulpes Vulpes (the red fox) is a testament to the intelligence and ingenuity they show in the face of often relentless persecution by humans.

There are 2 main reasons for their success in adapting to a range of living situations:

Size: they are a medium-sized mammal – small enough to be quite unobtrusive, and large enough to travel long distances in search of territory and food.

Variation – foxes can live off a wide variety of foods ranging from berries, insects, fruits, dead animals or a mixture of foodstuffs. More details in the ‘Diet’ section.
