Is the fox dangerous to humans?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

As children can be very active, foxes could be dangerous as they might feel intimidated by a loud playful child and may run away or quite rarely attack. But if the fox feels relaxed and happy (you can tell because if it is scared it may make whimpering noises and put its head down) it may allow you to approach it gently.

How has the Arctic fox affected humans?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There are no studies yet on climate change affecting the Arctic fox, but a warming land and atmosphere can disrupt the food chain for all animals. Habitats also change, and if they become intolerable, then animals have to move, adapt or die.

A:the ice is melting so there is not much ice to survive on, because the arctic foxes use the ice to go off land to possibly warmer places.

Global Warming is melting the ice so that red foxes take over leaving Arctic Foxes to go else where to find shelter food and water.

there are getting affected because its hard for the foxes to walk and its hard because they dont swim alot

In summer the background is dark - so dark fur helps them camouflage. In winter the snow makes the environment white so white fur helps them camouflage then.

What are some adaptations of the Arctic Fox?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Arctic fox's fur can be gray/blue or white in the winter so that it blends into the landscape. Its coat then changes from gray/blue to a charcoal color and from white to a brown color as summer begins. This is so that they are still camouflaged when the snow melts. They need to be camouflaged so prey and predators cannot see them as well.

It has the warmest fur of any mammal which is even warmer than the polar bear. Their fur is also oily, which helps to trap in some of the heat and waterproof the fox.

Arctic foxes also have a compact body with short legs, short ears, dense fur, and thickly haired foot pads. Therefore the less surface area is exposed to the cold, less heat escapes the body. These not only help to insulate against the cold, but provide grip on the ice as well.

They also have a good supply of body fat to keep them warm. Their short ears prevent body heat loss so they can stay warm.

They have a long, thick, bushy tail so that when they curl up to go to sleep they can cover their face with it, to keep them warm.

The Arctic Fox has such a keen sense of hearing that it can locate the exact position of prey under the snow, before using its front paws to punch through the snow and catch it.

In the coldest parts of the arctic, some foxes have adapted to following polar bears to feed off the scraps they leave behind when they are hunting.

What would happen if the Arctic foxes became extinct?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It would screw up the ecoystem. Usually if any animal disaperes it affects the whole food chain. If the acrtic fox preys on a certain species, and the fox disaperes then suddently there is nothing hunting the smaller prey so they will over populate. And if something hunts the acrtic fox than they would have no more to hunt. So it is important to protect all animals :)

Is it illegal to have a fox for a pet?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

According to DEFRA, for the canines of the following genera, you do not need any kind of license to own one as a pet in the UK

Alopex - Arctic Fox,

Cerdocyon - Crab-Eating Fox,

Otocyon - Bat-Eared Fox,

Psuedolopex - Argentine Grey Fox,

Urocyon - Island Fox,

Vulpes - Red Fox.

You would therefore need a license for species like the Kit Fox, or the Fennec.

How were foxes introduced in Australia?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Foxes were introduced into Australia initially for the purpose of recreational fox-hunting. Australia's roots were British, a country where fox-hunting had been carried out for hundreds of years, but the only "sport" that hunters had was dingoes and kangaroos. Bringing foxes to the new country enabled them to still indulge their sport of fox-hunting.

The European red fox was first released in the Geelong area near Melbourne in 1845. More were introduced after 1845 as a method for controlling the introduced hare problem. It was given time to breed, which it did prolifically with no natural predators on the continent, and fox-hunting started within a couple of decades.

Are there foxes in Tasmania?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Up until less than a decade ago, the red fox had not been introduced into Tasmania. However, since it was introduced in 2002, it has spread quickly, causing a potential environmental disaster in that fragile island state of Australia. Although a task force was set up to try to contain the problem there is still evidence that foxes remain a problem in Tasmania.

See the related link below for more information on the presence of foxes in Tasmania, and current eradication efforts.

What time is it Mr. Fox?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The game is called "What's the Time Mr. Wolf".

It involves one person acting as "Mr Wolf". They have to stay at the other side of the room - and when the other players ask "What's the time, Mr.Wolf?" he/she has to reply with a time - e.g. six o'clock. The players then have to take six steps closer to Mr.Wolf. Eventually, the players will ask the question, and Mr.Wolf will have to answer with "Dinner Time!" in which Mr.Wolf has to try and catch one of the other players. If he catches one, they become the wolf. If he doesn't, he plays again.
