Latin name:  Vulpes vulpes

History:  Neutered, male red fox.  Born in 2012 and purchased by his previous owner through a pet store, he quickly became too aggressive for his owner to handle.  He arrived at Octagon in the fall of 2013.  Red foxes are omnivores and will eat vegetables and fruits if meat is scarce.  The average life span of red foxes in the wild is 3 years, but they can live 10 - 12 years in captivity.  Male foxes are known as "dogs" and females are know as "vixens".  Their babies are called "kits".  Adult red foxes can produce up to 12 different vocal sounds, while kits can produce up to 8 sounds.  Foxes are nocturnal animals so much of their daylight hours are spent napping, though Hunter does exhibit curiosity in people throughout the day.
