Red Fox

Vulpes vulpes

The red fox is the last member of the dog family still wild in the UK. It is the size of a collie, with a huge bushy tail and large pointed ears. Its fur is a bright orange-red, with white chest and muzzle and darker legs and tip of tail. It lives in the countryside, hunting a range of small animals, but has also adapted to living in towns, scavenging in our bins for food scraps. You can see our red fox just by the termite pavilion. The best times to see him is mid afternoon and when we’re giving a public talk. If you can’t see him, check out his platform –  he’s often watching from above.
