What do red foxes eat?

Diet: Foxes are mostly carnivores (meat-eaters)

small insects
For red foxes, it depends on the time of year and how old they are. When young, the kits eat a mixture of seeds, grasses for digestion, and milk from their mothers. As they grow older, they will stop drinking milk gradually and will instead eat meat the mothers catch them. Some young are more hesitant than others. As they grow, they will entirely stop eating pant matter and will rely solely on meat.

What is the red fox's prey?

Red foxes are omnivores with a highly varied, but mainly carnivorous diet.

They primarily feed on small, mouse-like rodents like voles, mice, ground squirrels, hamsters, gerbils, woodchucks, pocket gophers and deer mice. Secondary prey species include birds, porcupines, raccoons, opossums, reptiles, insects, other invertebrates and flotsam (marine mammals, fish and echinoderms). On very rare occasions, they may attack young or small ungulates.

They typically target mammals up to about 3.5 kg in weight, and require 500 grams of food daily. Red foxes readily eat plant material and in some areas, fruit can amount to 100% of their diet in autumn. Commonly consumed fruits include blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries, persimmons, mulberries, apples, plums, grapes and acorns. Other plant material includes grasses, sedges and tubers.

Where do red foxes live?

Today, the red fox has a range spanning most of North America and Eurasia, southern Australia, and with several populations in North Africa. In Australia the red fox is an introduced species and a conservation problem. Introduction occurred about 1850, for recreational fox hunting, In North America the red fox is native in boreal regions, introduced in temperate regions. There is a recent fossil record of Red foxes in boreal North America, and one subspecies of these native boreal foxes extends south in the Rocky Mountains. In temperate North America, Red foxes are derived from European Red foxes, which were introduced into the Southeastern United States around 1650-1750 for fox hunting, and from there to California for the fur trade. The first introduction is attributed to Robert Brooke, Sr., who is said to have imported 24 Red foxes from England. The introduced European Red fox may have interbred with the scarce indigenous population to produce a hybrid population. Three subspecies of Red fox are found in India: Vulpes vulpes montana (the Tibetan Red fox), found in Ladakh and the Himalayas, Vulpes vulpes griffithi (the Kashmir Fox) found in Jammu and Kashmir less the Ladakh sector, and Vulpes vulpes pusilla (the Desert Fox) found in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan and in Kutch, Gujarat. A subspecies, the Japanese Red fox (Vulpes vulpes japonica) migrated from India to China and eventually to Japan.

What adaptations does the red fox have to have to survive?

1) The red fox have sharp claws that dig their dens and or help to dig into the ground to bury their food. These claws also serve to kill their prey.

2) They have sharp teeth which help them to shred and tear their food, which can meat or plants since they are omnivores.

3) Their long legs (compared to body and head size) are good for running quickly while chasing prey.

4) When being chased the red fox will vomit so that they can run faster. By vomiting they empty their stomachs which make them lighter and more agile. (cool huh?) (It is right?!)

5) They have a very good sense of hearing, smell, and sight, which warns them if danger is coming.

NOTE: They live in the Tiaga/Ever Green Forest
