A fox running through a snow covered field off of Township Road 40 in Canada
Fox is a common name for many species of omnivorous mammals in the Canidae family. They are smaller than a medium-sized dog with a long narrow snout and a bushy tail.
Foxes can live for up to 10 years in the wild, but due to hazards such as hunting and road accidents and diseases, they often live for only two to four years.
The picture on the left was taken in Waterton Lakes National Park of Canada here.
The other picture was taken at Banff National Park of Canada here.
“Rugged, windswept mountains rise abruptly out of gentle prairie grassland in spectacular Waterton Lakes National Park. Here, several different ecological regions meet and interact in a landscape shaped by wind, fire, flooding, and abundant plants and wildlife. The park helps protect the unique and unusually diverse physical, biological and cultural resources found in the Crown of the Continent: one of the narrowest places in the Rocky Mountains.”
