Foxes can crawl along cliffs, swim and climb trees. The fox is smart, cunning and paranoid, and sleeps day and night. Wild foxes live in groups, the struggle for survival between species is fierce, and the law of the jungle is the prey of the jungle.
Foxes have strong cold resistance and are not resistant to heat. They like to live in a dry, fresh and clean environment. Adult foxes change their hair once a year, and newborn snow foxes often have black fetal hair, but generally, the whole body becomes snow-white after the first hair change, and there is no miscellaneous hair all over the body;
Firefox shows red hair only after the first hair change.
From March to April, the hair was changed from the head and forelimbs, followed by the neck, back, body side, abdomen, hind limbs, and finally the buttocks and tail roots. The growth order of new hair is the same as that of depilation.
From July to August, the winter hair fell off, the hair born in spring stopped growing at the beginning of summer, and a large number of new needle hairs and villi grew at the end of July.
Therefore, the structure of winter hair is very different from that of summer wool. Summer hair is darker and shorter than winter hair, and winter hair is long and dense.
