One interesting fact about the WI red fox is that unlike wolves and other dogs, they don't form packs. They generally stay alone unless they are with their family. The red fox will travel around a lot, but will usually stay in the same home area for their whole life. Once they start a family, both the male and female will watch over the young to make sure they are well protected. One of many advantages that they have acquired is a strong sense of vision, smell, and touch. These are their best senses.
