Foxes are canids which are active both day and night and live in very diverse environments, from the Arctic tundra to deserts to suburbia. They hunt by stalking their prey, but they are not fussy eaters - their diet includes rabbits, hares, birds, mice, birds, frogs, beetles, worms, eggs, fruit, refuse, and any dead creature they come across.

The fennec fox is the smallest fox. It is nocturnal and lives in the Sahara Desert. It has large ears which help to radiate the heat, and fur on the soles of its feet to protect them from the hot sand. It eats rodents, insects, birds, lizards, termites, eggs, fruit, and seeds. The large ears help it to be able to locate food even if it is underground.
