What is a female fox called?

Answer

A female fox is called a vixen. A male fox can be referred to as a dog, tod or reynard. Young foxes are called cubs, pups or kits. The collective noun for foxes is a lead, leash or skulk.

The word "vixen" comes from the Old English term "fyxe," which was the feminine word for a fox. This evolved into the Middle English "fixen," and took its current form in the 14th or 15th century in Late Middle English. Vixen can also be used to mean a harmful or troublesome woman, and in colloquial English it can refer to a particularly flirtatious woman.
