Today we're getting up close and personal with a red fox! Two weeks ago on a Bonfire Snowshoe Tour, our guides and guests were lucky enough to see a red fox! Our guide Chaney was ready with his camera and caught some amazing pictures of this fantastic creature.
There are over 45 subspecies of the red fox that vary in size and colors and are scattered throughout the world. They are know for their ability to quickly adapt to new environments. They typically travel together in pairs but tend to hunt for their food alone. This guy was seen alone, probably interested in finding some food! They go out hunting in the early morning or late in the evening. This guy was seen traveling under the night sky.
Foxes are omnivores (meaning they eat both plants and animals) and love everything from blackberries to small rodents! Like all forest creatures, they have amazing characteristics that allow them to survive and thrive in the wild. Foxes have remarkable ears and can hear when a crow takes flight or mice begin to scurry from over 100 meters away.
We are so lucky to live in a place where we can see wildlife like this up close. We hope to continue to educate about and preserve our natural world so that creatures like this can continue to live in their natural habitat. Enjoy the pictures!
This fox was spotted during a Bonfire on the Snow snowshoe tour. Maybe he'll show up to the next one! You won't know unless you're there! Book it now!
