Vulpes Velox
These little foxes are called swift foxes, named for their ability to run really fast. They can reach speeds of 30-40 mph. Swift foxes look quite similar to the kit fox from the previous post, but their ears are smaller and pointier than those of the kit fox and their tails are shorter. They look like a bad taxidermy job of the kit fox (respectfully).
Tumblr media
Kit foxes and swift foxes are so similar in size, coloration, habitat, and behavior that researchers debate whether they are really different species. They are currently classified as different species but they might be different subspecies of the same kind of fox.
The range of the swift fox overlaps in some places with the range of the kit fox, but swift foxes are generally found farther East in the Great Plains.
Tumblr media
After wolves were mostly hunted to extinction in the places where swift foxes live, the coyote population greatly increased. Coyotes are the swift fox’s main predator, so the swift fox population dramatically decreased and they were listed as an endangered species. They were taken off the endangered species list in 2001 after a successful program increased their population. Their population is currently classified as least concern, meaning it’s stable.
Tumblr media
Like kit foxes, swift foxes are heavily dependent on their dens. They use these dens to raise kits and hide from predators which include coyotes, eagles, and bobcats. They can be found in some parts of Canada and northern United States, so they also need these dens to shelter from cold weather.
I rate this fox 10/10. Great little pointy ears

If only you could understand that you’re the light that illuminates my heart.
That when you sing, my body explodes inside with exceptional blissfulness.
If you could only comprehend that when I’m watching you, every time, my mind blanks, and you are the centre of my universe for a few seconds, or if I’m lucky, a few minutes.
Oh, Rotkehlchen! If only you could understand this indescribable love I have for you!
(An extract from my book “An ode to Rotkehlchen - How a grown-ass man fell in love with a little reddish bird”).
DISCLAIMER: There’s no such book.
