Father and Daughter Find Fox Den Full of Pups on Their Property


Philip Wang owns a home in Princeton, New Jersey on seven acres of property. One day while walking with his daughter Alice, he discovered a fox den and the adorable fox pups pictured here. Philip took these wonderful photos of the litter, which show them at their fuzzy wuzzy, cuddly and inquisitive best.

Now that the babies' eyes have opened and they're alert and exploring their surroundings, they are likely being taught by their elders to hunt. Foxes' first hunting lesson is generally for small rodents, which they catch with a characteristic high jump and pounce. Typically they do their hunting at night. 

How fortunate for the Wang family. There's nothing like a zoology lesson in your backyard, particularly one at this magnitude of cute. 

See more pictures of the baby fox siblings here.

When I lived out in the country we had a fox family that had some kits. At night you could hear them yipping away. It's one of my fondest memories. They live in a one mile radius and know their entire range intimately.
Here's a little tidbit of info: Know why a female fox is called a vixen? Because when she is in heat she sounds just like a woman in the throws of passion. No kidding. I worked at a nature center for a few years and one day I heard this woman moaning and making all sorts of sexual sounds. I was halfway across the center when the noise started. I followed the sounds and saw we had a female red fox that was in heat in one run that was making all the noise. Next to her run was a male arctic fox who was going crazy trying to get to her. (He never got the chance. He was neutered the next week.)
