Reproduction

Reproduction is the creation of offspring, whether sexually or asexually.

According to an article written by Aisling Irwin, the urban fox population in England has skyrocketed in recent times. The estimated urban fox population of about 33,000 in the 1990s has increased exponentially, now numbering to an estimated 150,000. Findings showed that there are an average of 18 foxes per every square kilometer in the city of London.

Adapt to Environment

When an organism adapts to the environment, it changes its appearance and/or properties to survive.

Feeding Preferences of the Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes)

For the first time, red foxes have been documented looking for baby koalas by climbing trees in Australia. Foxes may be preying on tree-dwelling animals because they are easier to hunt, as they are not used to fleeing in the presence of a fox (like rabbits would).

Grow and Develop

As an organism ages, it grows (either in size or number) and develops (changes in behavior and/or function).

The average growth of male and female fox cubs, taken from various sources including data provided by Vale Wildlife Rescue.

Uses Energy

The influence of season on the diet of Irish Red foxes. The graph shows the percentage of scats in which each type of food was found.
