A woman in Israel has known this curious vixen for a while. She is fairly friendly and will come close when she sees her. She's had a litter of 4 kits over the spring.

Normally the father would help to take care of the little ones by hunting and bringing food to the mother, but there is no dad in sight. Therefore, this woman has become somewhat of a surrogate father to her babies, allowing the mother fox to take food from her hand and go straight to give it to the kits or to bury it, never eating it herself.

Foxes are omnivores and usually eat insects, reptiles and birds, but they fancy a vegetarian meal every now and then, like eggs and plants.

This here is a case of a very loving fox mom that decided to trust a human in order to keep her babies safe and sound and provide food for them. Such a selfless act for an animal, don't you think?

Many foxes adapt well to human surroundings, and several species classified as "resident urban carnivores" for their ability to sustain populations entirely within urban boundaries.
