After the red fox photos we posted yesterday this red fox hunting video is a perfect follow -up. The hunting sequence of both red and Arctic fox on the tundra is one of the most phenomenal natural hunting techniques in the world. Foxes sense movement under the snow with their large ears which can be subtly tweaked in different directions to hone in on the exact position of lemmings or other small rodents. Although not always successful, the thrill of the hunt alone is worth watching. For the fox it is a skill that gets better as they age. Learning to locate and anticipate the prey’s movement takes incredible practice and is a key to their survival. The Arctic pushes animals to unique behavior that is truly incredible!
