Meet The New Foxes, May 3, 2021

Meet the Upper Valley's newest foxes! I'm following two dens, each with four kits. They're getting adventurous and roaming around their dens on their own. Mom is still feeding them and both parents are bringing solid food back to the dens for them. I'll post occasional updates when I get new pix. 

The kits spend a fair bit of time pouncing on each other and wrestling. They're practicing skills they'll need as an adult. I like the little guy on the right, just chewing on a stick and watching the action.

This wrestling match is winding down, they'll settle and take a quick nap.

The world outside the den is still new to them. They're alert to any dangers. Red foxRed foxRed fox (Vulpes vulpes) family

And ready to pounce at a moment's notice! Red foxRed foxRed fox (Vulpes vulpes) family

This kit is practicing stalking. It successfully brought down a wind-blown leaf!
