Biology & Literature
The European Red Fox – vulpes vulpes – is the UK’s largest predator and is the largest species of fox world wide. Their natural prey is rodents, game and invertebrates but are notorious for stealing the odd chicken from farms, which doesn’t make them the most popular of our native species.
Famous foxes include Roald Dahls Fantastic Mr Fox and Beatrix Potters Mr Tod, the “foxy whispered gentleman” from the Tale of Jemima Puddleduck.
