Red Fox Kits
Red fox kits are usually born in May after a 51 to 53 gestation period. Their parents will commonly occupy the larger dens of marmots or badgers which are found on slight rises and provide views from all directions. At four weeks, the kits will venture above ground to play and will also start eating food brought to them by their parents. At four months, the kits will disperse to find their own territories, which for male kits may be 150 miles or more away.
