The Red Fox

Weighing up to 5kgs and 120cms in length, Qatar’s Red Foxes are still around but not in the numbers, once seenΒ πŸ¦ŠπŸ˜•

Able to survive 12 years in safe captivity but just 3 years in the ‘wild’, they are also often victims of road accidents.πŸ˜”πŸ¦Š

Larger than sand foxes, they range from light brown to red in colour. A thicker coat appears during the winter months and they have a beautiful tail. The large ears help to dissipate heat to keep cool.🦊😎

The red fox is distinctly nocturnal.Β πŸ¦ŠπŸ‘€

Their diet includes birds, insects and fruit. On the beach, before dawn, they are spotted hunting for dead fish, crabs and will dig for turtles eggs too.Β πŸ¦ŠπŸ˜‹

They are also found scrambling in urban dumpsters, looking for foodΒ πŸ¦ŠπŸ˜‰

Keep an eye out for these lovely little creatures on our night roads. Gently move them from urban points. Humans are taking over their habitat and not the other way around.πŸ¦ŠπŸ˜‘πŸ˜
