    thats awesome (kinda bad about the littering but shows how nature adapts to the bad things humans do and find a way to cope and even thrive with it)

    Ever heard of the Japanese Kitsune?They can be good heroines/heros.

    Yes.It's a true fox.It's also Vulpes macrotis.
    If so, then I have observed a fox over about 8 years. Someone enviornmentally-retarded dumped a couch in the empty feild behind where I used to live. Shortly after, a young kit-fox moved in, and it was then deemed "illegeal" to remove the couch, as it was the home of a protected species (The field still has that couch to this day).
    This was about eight years ago, and from my old bedroom window, I could see this couch. Over this entire period, I could observe it and it's lifestyle.
    It was really a very interesting, and If I was older and had actually realized the scientific value in this, I could have perhaps documented it's actions over this time and sold it to some animal research firm.
    We moved a little over a year ago, but as far as I know, the kit-fox still lives there (as the couch is still there, and no construction on the field (though it was previously bought))
    As the kit fox is sly!

    Wow, that's interesting! You could observe that fox for many years! Did it live completely alone?
    Most foxes live alone.But it could have cubs.

    EXACTLY!

    Sorry, as far as I know, it was alone. There were other animals in the field (snakes, lizards, mice, wild cats), but no other kit-foxes.

    Lol, my complex was surrounded on all four sided by:
    N: field (with the kit fox) still a field
    NE-E: field (with that brief time of the white fox) now duplexes
    SE-S: field, now apartments/Darrell's mini-storage
    W: Airport (the part with no construction) so basically a field

    We got lots of random wildlife over the years,

    One year, there was a white fox of some kind in the adjacent field, then it disappeared and they started construction in that feild (now it's filled with duplexes).

    I have heard that when a fox is beaten and cornered such that it has no route to escape, then it pretends that it has died. It completely stops moving. When the danger goes away it gets up again and run away.
