Vulpini | Fox-like Canids

Foxes are carnivorous mammals under the taxonomic rank Vulpini and fit into the family Canidae. They are usually very social and identified by the long-bushy tail, upright triangular ears, flattened skull, and the ability to move pretty fast. Foxes are found in every part of the world in places such as the savanna, mountains, and deserts though they are of varied sizes, color, behavior, and characteristics with the red fox being the most common. Their cunning nature gives them widespread fame in folklore and distinct cultures around the world. In addition, they are usually pursued by trained foxhounds in a tradition identified as fox hunting.

Arctic Fox

The Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus) is adapted to living in cold environments and has thick, warm fur that is used as camouflage. Their fur is sometimes white and at other times turns into a blue-gray coat. Arctic Foxes are native to the arctic regions of Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Russia, Norway, Scandinavia, and Iceland.

Arctic Foxes typically live in burrows or dens. Their diet generally consists of lemmings, voles, ringed seal pups, fish, waterfowl, and seabirds. In the wild most arctic foxes typically do not live past their first year of life.

Arctic Foxs have a shoulder height of 10”-12” (25-30 cm), body length between 18”-24” (46-61 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 7-17 lb (3-7.7 kg). The typical lifespan of a Arctic Fox is 3-6 years in the wild and up to 14-16 years when raised in captivity.

Fennec Fox

The Fennec Fox (Vulpes zerda), found in northern Africa as well as the Sinai and Arabian peninsulas, is a small-sized fox distinguished by its tiny head and large ears. In addition to it being a distinctive feature, the ears of the Fennec Fox work to dissipate heat for this desert dweller.

The Fennec Fox also has thick, cream-colored fur which works to deflect the heat of the sun during the day. Ultimately, the Fennec Fox will avoid heat by spending its days burrowed underground, feeding on insects and smaller animals at night.

Fennec Foxs have a shoulder height of 7”-9” (18-23 cm), body length between 10”-16” (25-41 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 2-4 lb (1-2 kg). The typical lifespan of a Fennec Fox is 8-10 years in the wild and up to 10-14 years in captivity.
