Foxes are members of the dog family. A female fox is called a “vixen”, a male fox is called a “dog fox” or a “tod” and baby foxes are called “pups”, “kits” or “cubs”.
Foxes are generally smaller than other members of the family Canidae such as wolves, jackals, and domestic dogs. For example, in the largest species, the red fox, males weigh on average between 4.1 and 8.7 kg (9.0 and 19.2 lb), while the smallest species, the fennec fox, weighs just 0.7 to 1.6 kg (1.5 to 3.5 lb).
Wild foxes tend live for around 3-6 years, but some foxes have been known to be older than 13 in captivity.
Foxes are found on every continent except Antarctica.
Foxes usually live in forested areas, but they can be found in mountains, grasslands and deserts. They also thrive in cities, towns, and rural settings.
