What are a fox's natural predators?


In the wild, foxes are hunted by large cats, coyotes, jackals and wolves. Depending on where the fox lives, it can also be hunted by eagles, bears and even humans.

The red fox is the most abundant of fox species. It lives everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere and has even spread into Australia in recent years. The red fox typically eats a varied diet consisting of birds, rodents, carrion and fruit. Their bodies are built for agility and speed and they hunt during the day.

Foxes are the perfect size to be hunted by animals such as eagles, wolves and other medium-sized predators. Farmers consider foxes to be pests, but they are important in controlling crop-eating animals, such as rabbits and rodents.
