There are twelve different species of true foxes. These are in the Vulpes genus of foxes. These twelve different species include; red fox, Bengal fox, arctic fox, Blanford’s fox, cape fox, corsac fox, fennec fox, kit fox, pale fox, Rueppell’s fox, swift fox, and Tibetan sand fox. These species differ by geographic location, fur color, and size. Foxes are part of the canidae family which also includes dogs, coyotes, jackals, and wolves. Their young are referred to as kits and a litter is usually three to ten kits. Around seven months of age the kits will leave their parents to go out and live on their own. What separates a fox from the other members of the canidae family is their smaller body size and flat skull structure. Another thing that is different about each species of fox is their eating habits. They can either be carnivores or omnivores. The red fox is the largest of all twelve species of foxes and it’s also the most common of the foxes because it can be found in most parts of the world. The reason these are the most commonly found foxes is because they are able to adapt to different climates.
