Jim Gilbert's Nature Notes: Red foxes

Like other wild dogs, red foxes hunt primarily at night, but they are known to extend this activity into daylight during the winter, when prey is harder to catch. They like to sleep in the open during the midday, curling up on the snow in some spot protected from wind, sunning themselves when they can while keeping a watchful eye or ear out for intruders. They seldom sleep deeply.
