Fox

Fox

Foxes generally have only one mate, although social groups of one male to several females are known. Foxes are reproductively receptive once per year and are stimulated to breed by changing day-length and resource availability. Average litter size is four with up to 10 being possible. Cubs are weaned by about one month and are sexually mature by 10 months. They usually have well defined home ranges with spatially stable borders. Ranges vary in size depending on habitat and have been recorded at around 30 ha in urban areas and up to 1,600 ha in arctic environments. Dispersal is a common behaviour in sub-adult males from late summer through to breeding time in winter.
