Common Name: Red Fox
Scientific Name: Vulpes vulpes
Location: Utah Lake Field Station
The red Fox is the largest species of fox. Their ears are so sensitive they can pick up a watch ticking from 40 yards away. This ability to hear so sharply helps them find and store food for later. Red foxes will still hunt even when they are full. They store their food in the snow, vegetation, and dirt to have when they are hungry again. Their diet consists of rodents, rabbits, birds, berries, fruit, and grass. We have gotten trail-cam footage of Red Foxes at the property.
