Red foxes live around the world in many diverse habitats including forests, grasslands, mountains, and deserts. They also adapt well to human environments such as farms, suburban areas, and even large communities. Red foxes are solitary hunters who feed on rodents, rabbits, birds, and other small game but their diet can be as flexible as their home habitat. Foxes will also eat fruit and vegetables, fish, frogs, and insects. If living among humans, foxes have been seen dinning on garbage and pet food. In winter, foxes meet to mate. The vixen (female) typically gives birth to a litter of 2 to 12 pups. Both parents care for their young through the summer before they are able to strike out on their own in the fall.
