I’d been informed that someone, a Museum Guest, had spotted gray fox pups just off the trail in Explore the Wild. I’d seen an adult in this area many times during the past few months so it was no surprise, but I was excited at the prospect of getting photos of the pups.
As I stolled past the site, one of the adults huffed and barked at me and retreated down into the gully that’s beside the path near the Secondary Wetlands Overlook. She, or he, was protecting the litter, some of which I could see behind the adult.
A few seconds later a couple of much younger faces popped into view.
Welcome to the world little foxes.
By the way, these are wild fox, not part of an exhibit. If you happen to encounter these fox, or any wild creature here at the Museum, please keep a safe distance. This reminder is for both your safety and that of the animals.
