hind legs









The fox eats the food it eats because its stomach can digest both plants and animals (see 1st paragraph) and foxes live near where their food can be found. Berries and vegetables can be found in human gardens and in the woods. Mice, rabbits and birds can be found almost anywhere and fish and frogs can be found in and near streams and rivers.

Foxes are omnivores. That means they eat both plants and other animals. Foxes eat berries , vegetables, fish ,frogs, birds, mice and rabbitsSlide7

Functions of a Fox

The fox’s pelt changes color depending on the season to camouflage itself from predators The thick warm fur a fox helps it to keep warm and dry so it doesn't freeze

Food Source

Fennec foxes, like red foxes, are omnivores. They live in the desert. They eat mice, birds, insects, small reptiles, eggs, fruit, leaves, roots. It eats the food it eats because the fennec fox can digest both plants and animals. Also the fennec fox eats that because its prey lives in the desert as well. The fennec fox does not need to drink water as often as us so the desert is a perfect habitat for the fennec foxSlide14

Preferred Habitat of a Fennec Fox

The fennec fox lives in the desert. It lives there because the fennec fox can survive without drinking water frequently. The right kind of prey for the fennec fox lives in the desert, for example, mice, birds and rabbits live in the desert so that is what the fennec fox eats.There are also lots of old, unused burrows that provide shelter and coolness for in the middle of the day when the day is the hottest.Slide15

The Arctic Fox Habitat

The Arctic Fox mainly lives near the coast in the Arctic Tundra. Surprisingly instead of building their own den they rather burrow in abandoned dens. The Arctic Fox prefers the Arctic Tundra habitat because: 1. Humans rarely travel to hunt there so they have less of a threat 2. The white snow helps blend with their stark white coats in the winter giving them an advantage in hunting 3. Their bodies are specially built for the rough weather thereSlide18

Arctic Foxes Fun Facts

Arctic Foxes Food Source

In the summer the Arctic Fox can find lots of food to eat.Some things on its diet are mice,birds,birds eggs, rabbits,and occasionally berries.Arctic Foxes that live near the coast will follow a polar bear until it makes its kill. Then it will take some of the meat to store in something called a cache until winter comes. Slide21
