Foxes are shrewd and clever mammals with narrow faces and long, bushy tails that are covered in thick, short fur.

You might be familiar with the red fox, the one with the reddish-brown fur and white tip at the end of its tail. What may surprise you is that the colour of fox fur can range from all white, to mixed red and black to all black (with a white tip at the end of its tail).

Did you know that a group of foxes was called a leash (or skulk)? Yep, not all animal groups simply go by group or herd. What's more, a young fox is called a cub (or pup), a female fox a vixen and a male fox a dog fox.

Foxes have small bodies, and as a result, small tummies. The size of the meals that foxes eat are (you guessed it) small, so they eat often throughout the day. Their favourite munchies are rodents (especially mice) but they'll also eat squirrels, rabbits, birds, lizards, bugs and chickens. As they're often around humans too, you could find foxes in your garden, eating fruits, berries and even dog food! There's so much that makes foxes special, and here are some puns to match!

For more laughs take a look at these werewolf puns or these hedgehog puns.
