The red fox is a very adaptable and clever animal, and it is found in all kinds of habitats all the way from coastlines by waters to mountainous areas in the wilderness. Foxes thrive wherever they can find food at the time. The red fox feeds mostly on voles, but when the vole population is low, other animal food fairs well with it too: it hunts for grouse and their eggs and young ones, frogs, fish and even insects. It may even eat berries and fruit, carrion and other food disposals.
The red fox is mainly dusk and night-active but may search for food or members of the opposite sex also during the day. Lately, the red fox has increased its territories further up north to the mountainous regions, competing for nutrition and nesting areas with the much smaller and far rarer species, namely, the arctic fox.
You don’t have to get back on your home-trip hungry, tired or without gifts to bring home to; at the Ranua Wildlife Park complex you have a diversity of services and plenty to do during your stay.
