April #SuperSnap

This month’s supersnap goes to an inquisitive red fox (Vulpes vulpes) chasing prey, nominated by @AUK. Red fox are known for their intelligence and cunning. These abilities help them to survive all over the world in a diverse set of habitats including mountains, deserts, grasslands, urban environments and here in Wisconsin!

The University of Wisconsin Madison has launched a project, the Urban Canid Project, to investigate red fox and coyote use of urban landscapes. Similar to Snapshot Wisconsin, the Urban Canid Project uses the power of citizen science to collect data on space use, behavior and population demographics of city dwelling canids. To learn more about the project, check out this link.
