We found a red-tailed fox on a day trip, before we moved; one who seemed quite familiar with humans. I had forgotten about this little guy!

The red fox preys primarily on small animals such as voles, mice, lemmings, hares and rabbits. They also like the taste of chicken and have been called chicken thieves by many farmers. The red fox doesn’t just eat meat, though. It also likes to eat plants, fruits and berries. Even when the red fox is not hungry, it will keep hunting and gathering food to store for its next meal.
The fox seems to cross our side yard every few days or so. This is for the record! In a complex ecosystem like ours, both predators and prey have to be predictably unpredictable.

Two weeks ago, 7:28 a.m. on Nov. 15th I captured a brief video!
This is in the backyard.

Kiwi Gardens, a nursery northwest of Perth, has had a fox in their greenhouse. They have a video on their Facebook page! They feature Art in the Garden, Father's day weekend every year. These are two screen captures from their video.
