The fox is a red and orange mammal. It can be 14in - 20in and it weighs up to 75 lbs. In the winter its fur may turn white. They can run about 30 miles per hour. In the winter a fox will turn white so they will blend in with the snow while in the in the summer they change back to red and orange and evan brown. They are a family member to the wolves and jackals,coyotes, and domestic dogs.

The fox is an omnivore. It eats berries and meat. I mostly need meats because of the protein. When alone, they will eat smaller prey, but with the pack, it will eat bigger prey. Some of the animals they eat are birds, mice, and rabbits. They get the food from all around the world, but the most common habitat is the grasslands, desert, and mountains.

The red fox will need some things to survive. One of them is that the fox likes to live in the forest in wooded areas because they blend in with the red wooded trees. This means predators may not see them. They also adapt to human environments, such as farms, suburban areas, and even large communities.

Most foxes live in groups or packs. If the fox is alone it will not hunt unless it has too but it is different for a Arctic fox. Sense they blend in so well prey doesn’t notice them.

One fun fact is the winter and that foxes live almost everywhere except Antarctica. Foxes can also hear a watch ticking 40 yards away or (120 feet) away
