My Dad took this picture yesterday. He has a fox den in the woods near his house. He has seen at least three baby foxes around the den as well as the mother. We ordered a remote trigger cable so we could set a camera on a tripod near the opening of the den in hopes of getting a good pic of the babies. Still waiting on the cable but I don't think we can get a shot much better than this.

Your foxes look remarkably like ours. Any idea of the Latin name? Ours is Vulpes vulpes crucigera. Not sure if the early settlers from Enland took foxes with them.
Nice pics.

"In North America the Red Fox is native in boreal regions, introduced in temperate regions.[5] (external link) There is a recent fossil record of Red Foxes in boreal North America, and one subspecies of these native boreal foxes extends south in the Rocky Mountains.[6] (external link) In temperate North America, Red Foxes are derived from European Red Foxes, which were introduced into the Southeastern United States (external link) around 1650-1750[7] (external link)[8] (external link) for fox hunting (external link),[9] (external link), and from there to California (external link) for the fur trade (external link). The first introduction is attributed to Robert Brooke, Sr. (external link), who is said to have imported 24 Red Foxes from England.[10] (external link). The introduced European Red Fox may have interbred with the scarce indigenous population to produce a hybrid (external link) population.[11] (external link)
Three subspecies of Red Fox are found in India (external link): Vulpes vulpes montana (the Tibetan Red Fox), found in Ladakh (external link) and the Himalayas (external link), Vulpes vulpes griffithi (the Kashmir Fox) found in Jammu and Kashmir (external link) less the Ladakh sector, and Vulpes vulpes pusilla (the Desert Fox) found in the Thar Desert (external link) of Rajasthan (external link) and in Kutch (external link), Gujarat (external link). A subspecies (external link), the Japanese Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes japonica) migrated from India (external link) to China (external link) and eventually to Japan (external link), where the Red Fox is also known by the Japanese (external link) name kitsune (external link) (狐)."

Great, great captures... Congratulations on your set-up... Don't hesitate to crop these a bit... They are terrific.

Thanks Hobo for the research. Looks like we have the same species.
