The fox family

You all know how much I love foxes, imagine how thrilled I was to see so many of them during my holiday last week. And the best news is that there is a fox den somewhere not far from my house, I haven't found it yet but my mom saw two fox kits one evening and I saw one the next morning. They are so incredibly cute! Quite small still.

So this is the first fox I met one evening hunting for food :)

And this is the mom. She was so occupied with the hunt and when she appeared to the field she already had about 4 mice in her mouth :D But then dropped them all and caught another one. And then quickly hurried to her kiddies with 5 mice in her mouth! :)

This is a closeup of the mice! :D Against the light so not good quality. And would you look at those tits! HAHAHA

Very early next morning I went to look for little foxes and I managed to find their trail. It was another sunny day but the trail was in a dark forest, not good conditions for photography. I was already giving up of finding the den when suddenly I saw one fluffy little fellow hopping towards me on that very trail! :D He saw me just as I saw him which was a pity. We stared at each other for 10 seconds and then he turned and ran back the way he came. It was my first encounter with a fox kit and I knew that they were cute but I didn't think they could be this cute! :D Looking forward to meeting them again!

This is another handsome fellow, I think this could be the dad but I'm not 100% sure. He was a bit lazy :) Sat in the middle of the field for a long time and was probably waiting for the mice to jump into his mouth ;)


  1. How wonderful!!! Pity you couldn't catch a photo of the little kit you saw, but maybe next time...How beautiful those "Little foxes" are, Little Fox!...Thank you for sharing!
