About the Red Fox

The red fox is the largest of all foxes. Red foxes are carnivores. Red foxes live around the world in many diverse habitats including forests, grasslands, mountains, and deserts. They also adapt to farms, suburban areas, and large communities. Red foxes feed on rodents, rabbits, birds, and other small animals. Red foxes will eat just about any farm crop.


Red foxes are one of the most endangered species in North Carolina. Farmers should really be careful with their pesticide use because the chemicals can harm the red foxes. Farms are becoming more and more of a danger to species like red foxes. Deforestation and farming can decrease the amount biodiversity because of the harm and lack of nutrients. The restoration of wetlands is helpful to the diverse population of animals. Without wetlands, animals are lacking what they need to live. Farmers can help the population of red foxes by limiting the use of pesticides. They better hurry, fewer and fewer are seen everyday!
