Red Fox in Yellowstone by Jack Bell Photography

"The Hunter"
Red foxes feed primarily on small rodents, and unlike most mammals, they can hear low-frequency sounds extremely well. When a fox is hunting, it listens intently and can pick up on tiny sounds — including the sound of a vole scampering beneath 3 feet of snow. Even when its prey is out of sight, the fox can pinpoint the animal's exact location. It then leaps into the air and strikes from above, a technique known as mousing.
