The red fox is native to the British Isles, and is widespread throughout the British isles. The Fox is a member of the dog family. Foxes have moved into urban areas over the last 30 years, due to a change in people's lifestyles and the introduction of fast food.
There has been a rapid spread of foxes into urban areas during the 20th century, particularly in the south of England. This has mirrored the growth in urban sprawl. Like people, foxes prefer suburban housing with large gardens where they can find shelter under shrubbery, sheds, and in secluded corners Foxes shelter in burrows known as earths or dens. An active den can easily be identified as it is likely to be surrounded by an untidy array of food remnants, faeces and miscellaneous items. Well worn paths to the entrance, which is about 25 cm wide, and decidedly unpleasant musty smell, will betray the recent presence of foxes.
Foxes breed once a year. The mating season begins in January when the eerie mating cries can be heard during the night. A litter of 4-5 cubs is born about late March, and the cubs remain exclusively in the den until about May By June or July the den will be abandoned, the cubs will be learning to forage for food and their playful activities will be evident. By early autumn, the cubs will be almost fully grown, and by late autumn the family begins to disperse, although in urban areas many remain in or around their original home territory. Some people believe the fox population is increasing but this is not the case. Fox populations are relatively stable and self regulating according to the availability of habitat and food.
The fox is an omnivore, eating birds, rabbits, small mammals, insects, worms, fruit, grassland a wide variety of scavenged food. In urban areas, scavenged food can constitute up to 50% of their diet as foxes eat what we discard.
Found throughout the UK. Common near urban areas fresh or rotting food matter.
