Red fox puppies. View of two red fox (Vulpes vulpes) puppies in their den at the base of a tree. Red fox pups are typically born in litters of between two and ten individuals. They are weaned after around two months, but stay with their mother for up to a year. After this time, they wander off to find their own territories. Red foxes are an adaptable species found throughout the northern hemisphere. They are active both at day and at night, and feed on fruit, vegetables and small animals. Foxes live in dens, most commonly in deciduous woodland, but also in urban areas, where they scavenge from bins as well as hunt.
