These are the last pictures I took of my beloved Ice T, my Tonton, our #toniafox . It still doesn’t feel quite real that she is gone. I cannot begin to describe our devastation at losing her. She was the master of all she surveyed, the ruler of her yard and her boys - I don’t know how her absence will change the dynamic - she was the sassy girl who would nip my calf if she wanted attention or treats and I wasn’t providing. She would love me one minute and utterly ignore me the next. She was standoffish, sweet and utterly perfect. She cared for her boys so much. She loved kit season and brought them all up so well. We are so much poorer for the loss of her but that much richer for having her in our lives. We love you, Tonton. We miss you so much. Negative comments will be deleted. We are grieving. This is no place for spite or vitriol. #saveafoxrescue#redfox#furfarmsurvivor#vulpesvulpes#heartbroken#foxesofig
Two red foxes from the same den were calling to each other and running through the woods last week when this one ran through a clearing for a moment. Their winter coats are amazing!

Foxy Lady (Vulpes vulpes)
A born survivor with a bushy tail. Ever adaptable, the fox is equally at home in our woods or city streets. It sits top of the woodland food chain with a diet that takes in everything from birds and beetles to rabbits and rats. - The Woodland Trust
'Why does any encounter with a fox stop us dead in our tracks? The truth is that, with their splendid red coats, bright eyes, pricked ears, acute senses and feline agility, they continue to mesmerise and amaze us. Even the most hardened gamekeeper admires their cunning and guile — they're perfect hunting machines and true survivors.' These words come from this week's editorial in Country Life, which pays tribute to the creature that's our top mammalian predator; the cover photograph is by @alannahhawkerphotography #fantasticmrfox#vulpesvulpes#foxes

Seguro que habéis escuchado alguna vez la frase de "perro no come a perro". En este post, Eneko Arrondo, investigador de la Estación Biológica de Doñana, nos cuenta que los zorros también son carroñeros. También nos habla del continúo conflicto que ha tenido, a lo largo de su historia, con el ser humano.
We spotted a Red Fox yesterday going back and forth between North Campus Open Space and Coal Oil Point Reserve. This non-native species is a rare sighting at the reserve, but has been seen a few times here in the last couple of weeks. #kingofmulchmountain#redfox#vulpesvulpes @ccber_ucsb
Fox flapjack photo-ops have me in love with working with @earth_rangers!
This organization is everything to me right now. Supporting kids in their conservation efforts and encouraging them to get outside and make a difference is a dream job. If you want some bonus points to get a little one in your life started out on the new Earth Rangers app, holler at your girl!! 🙋🏼♀️
