Foxy!

Tonight I found a pair of red foxes (Latin: Vulpes vulpes) in a Saint Louis city park.



From a distance, this fox appeared to move in almost a catlike fashion, that is, with far more flexibility than domestic dogs.

This fox didn't seem to be too afraid of me. After talking to it an a calm, reasurring voice, it came close enough for a good picture.




Here are both foxes. The one on the right was a bit skittish, and kept its distance, while the left fox seemed unconcerned.




I wanted to keep these foxes company, so I started singing to them, but my allergies acted up and my awful singing, mixed with hacking and coughing, chased them away.
