Vixen 1

Look what I spotted when out and about in Nature yesterday. What a treat to see this female fox.

I just caught a glimpse of her as she walked away.

Vixen 2

Notice the little black feet and bushy tail. Even though it was early morning, it is still unusual to see them during the day.

Vixen 3 – LM

Of course, it could just be our very own Little Monkey, after she’s been paddling in a muddy stream!

Did I trick you? Did I?

It’s been a while since I’ve tried as it’s getting harder to fool you guys; you’re too sharp!


post script: Here in Cape Town we don’t get the large Red Fox that is typically found in the Northern Hemisphere and Australia, but we do have our very own Cape Fox. This is silver in colour, about 30 cm tall and weighs up to 5 kg. So it’s quite a bit smaller than LM who weighs in at nearly 23 kg.

    LM is considerably bigger than Maggie who weighs in at around 16kg now. It’s the heaviest she’s ever been, but I guess it’s because although we walk her regularly, our pace as well as her own is slower, and she doesn’t run as much as she used to.
    We do have a local fox though, and are pleased to see badgers too, but never at the same time. The badger sett is in the garden of a very large house on the corner and the fox den is somewhere in the park.

      Yes, dogs often gain a little as they age, for the reasons you say and also their metabolism slows down. Maggie still looks good though. 🙂
      TJ – my Gravatar photo – weighed about 16 kg. 🙂
      How marvellous to see foxes and badgers in the wild. 🙂
