Male foxes are called Reynards, and weigh, on average, around 5.9 kilograms (13 lb) while female foxes, called vixens, weigh less, at around 5.2 kilograms (11.5 lb).

3) Grey foxes can retract their claws like cats do.

4) A male is called a ‘dog fox’ while a female is called a ‘vixen’.

5) Foxes are generally solitary animals; unlike wolves, they hunt on their own rather than in packs.

6) Foxes dig underground dens where they take care of their kits and hide from predators.

7) Their pupils are vertical, similar to a cat, helping them to see well at night.

8) The tip of a red fox’s tail is white, whereas swift foxes have a black-tipped tail.

9) Foxes have excellent hearing. Red foxes can reportedly hear a watch ticking 40 yards away!

10) Foxes stink, their funny ‘musky’ smell comes from scent glands at the base of their tail.
