Red Fox Wrestling!

Posted on Apr 17, 2015

Would you be interested in watching young Red Fox kits wrestling? Do you want to see adorable pups in battle training? How do you like fluffy little cubs biting and attempting to “kill” one another? If so, you’re in luck! As in previous Red Fox postings I shot these through a window from afar for the safety of the competitors as well as the photographer (and this would never happen if they could see me!)…

Everything these little ones do is precisely what a litter of your pet puppies would do, and they all seem to have their distinct personalities. That tiny one looked a bit scared of its sibling about to leap down and maul it. Some enjoy sunbathing more than others, and one really likes to wander further than the rest. A couple seem to stick close to mom. Watching them grow up is an incredibly rewarding experience.
