Foxies – Spring

March

peak birth period is mid-March. Cubs are born deaf, blind and unable to thermoregulate for the first two weeks, so their mother rarely leaves them. She is provisioned by other adults in the group; their visits with food are the first sign that a den is occupied.

April
Cubs first emerge above ground in late April, when they start eating solid food. Scraps and play items accumulate around the earth. There may also be a strong smell of rotting food. Other signs that cubs have emerged include small droppings, buzzing flies and flattened plants.
