Red Fox In Glacier National Park





We do hope you have enjoyed these pictures here at Glacier Park Information.

Speed is not a necessity for the red fox. They hunt using their noses and quickly pounce on their prey, like a house cat.
In late winter, during breeding season, fox will hunt in pairs, but usually they will hunt alone. Baby fox are known as kits and are born in early spring. Both mother and father will participate in the parenting. They will both hunt and supply live prey for the kits. This teaches the young to hunt and kill for themselves.
By the end of the summer, the kits are ready to set off on their own. Spotting a red fox in Montana is never difficult if you look carefully—just keep a close watch for their bushy tail.

Red foxes are found throughout Montana; they feel right at home in many different habitats. Often Red Fox are associated with crop lands. Since they dine on small mammals and rodents, they can make their home wherever they can find this food source. And since you can find rodents just about anywhere, you can find the red fox just about anywhere, as well.
