How cute are they!!!! and what a bizarre colour that smokey charcoal grey is...I want one! The cubs on the 'wasteground' at the back of base camp can't be far off too, bet i don't get photos like these though.
cheers

Warren Baker said...

Are these your pets monika ? How on earth did you get them to pose like that!!!

Monika said...

Glad you're all enjoying the cuteness as much as I am. I'll get some more photos up soon.

Dave - I know, I had the same "I want one" feeling!

Warren - I wish! Fortunately for me like pet pups they are extremely curious. While I've seen the parents hunting rodents, etc. I've also seen them begging for handouts from stopped cars on the nearest roadway, so they're probably used to people being around. When I took these photos, neither of the parents were around though, and the kits just came out of the den and right over to see what I was all about!

What an experience and a wonderful discovery. I hate that they aren't shy of people, however. Don't know what kind of trouble that will get them into. Not everyone loves a fox...

That gray one is so different. All of your pics are adorable!

Vickie - I don't like the fact that they're used to people, either. Most people who live here are fox-tolerant at the very least, and visitors seem to love them. I'd still rather they be truly wild than depending on human hand outs, but it's tough when you have people and animals living in such close proximity.

Also, the mother is red and the father is black, so I think that's why the kits come in all colors. The black version of the red fox is relatively common here, and we have a cinnamon brown variety, too. I wonder if the small population (due to being limited on an island) has something to do with it.
