Fox kits

On a recent drive we chanced across the Garlyn Zoo in the U.P. of Michigan. They had a fox family of four there. The kits were active doing the usual fox kit things, like chewing on roots and wrestling each other.

They matched the coloration of their parents. One marble phase, and one brownish grey kit.

Here is a video of them wrestling. To spoil the ending, one gets the other's tail at the end.

Edit: I have a fair amount of fox photography (though most of it taken at zoos). If anyone wants higher quality versions (or quantity) of these, I can always burn DVDs of them. You can make copies, though I do not release them to public domain.

Chatty fox

Here is a fox video that I took the day after we got married last year. He is chatting away for something.

A while back we visited a zoo with three non-standard colour red foxes.

It was a hot day, and they were all panting like crazy.

Two of them also tried to stay in their hutch because idiots were actually encouraged to toss them peanuts. There was a sign up that said "We Like Peanuts". The place sold peanuts with admissions. Yes, foxes are omnivores, but they don't dig being rained on by peanuts.

Anyway, on to a few pics:

The first fox reminds me of Basil. They share somewhat similar markings, though this guy has a white back.

This next guy looks like a Welsh Corgi fox! It's some sort of reverting marble phase. He looked similar to the marble phase fox, except for areas of red returning. Never seen anything like it before.

And here is the marble phase fox of the group. This one is quite cute.

And here is the fox battle!
