When mother fox heads off to hunt, three of her adventurous kits emerge from their den for a healthy dose of playtime.
A chance encounter with a family of red foxes in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada is the setting for this adorable video.
After spending the day hiking some back trails, a chance encounter with a red fox led me to discover this den – and the hidden little balls of fur it contained.
I later found out that the family consists of six kits. I’m guessing only half were feeling adventurous this day.
Nature never ceases to amaze me. What started off as an average hike turned into an intimate moment spent with a red fox family that I won’t soon forget!
