Foxy Love: Photographer Proves That Foxes Are Extremely Loving Creatures (11 Pics)

ADVERTISEMENT

Talented Dutch photographer Roeselien Raimond (whom we’ve written about and spoken with before here) takes stunning photos of wild foxes. For this year’s Valentine’s day she agreed to give Bored Panda an exclusive interview and talk about how attentive and loving foxes are, despite the popular belief that they are mean and deceitful creatures.

“I know of no animal that shows as much love and affections as foxes do. That could be because I know no animal, like I know foxes, but that’s not the point here. The point is….love. Foxy love to be more precise”.

“Foxes are known to be smart, false, deceitful and mean creatures- a successful character assassination; even I believed it as a child, when reading the famous fox fables. That was, until I started following foxes and learned to know them very well and found out that love must be their middle name”.

“I know of no animal that shows as much love and affections as foxes do,” Roeselien told Bored Panda

“It’s sad that foxes are believed to be deceitful and mean creatures, even I believed it as a child”

“That was, until I started following foxes and learned everything about them”

“I found out that love must be their middle name”

“I know that foxes will use any excuse for a good cuddle session”

“Under the disguise of cleaning each others coats lies pure attention and dedication to one another”

“Mothers and children, brothers and sisters, fathers and cousins… it’s like they live in some sort of hippy community”

“Sleeping in peace and waking up for love and cuddles, proving everyone who thought they were mean wrong!”

“There’s one thing I can still agree to, regarding the stereotypes about foxes. Foxes are smart indeed!”

“They understand that it’s love that makes our world go round”

“So spread the word and that foxy love!”

Thank you, Roeselien Raimond, for talking to Bored Panda about your amazing work!

I joined Bored Panda as an image editor back in 2014, during its early stages. It's been quite a journey since then! Over time, I transitioned through different roles until I eventually became the Content Lead. In this position, I now oversee the creation of the viral content published here on Bored Panda. While my primary focus lies in raising awareness about important social issues like gender and race equality, as well as mental health topics, I also enjoy sharing lighter content, such as memes, cat images and intriguing world curiosities. Outside of work, you'll likely find me engaged in one of five activities: planning a vacation, browsing thrift stores, experimenting in the kitchen, watching movies, or spending quality time with my two cats.

The photos of the beautiful foxes show the bonds of love that animals have for each other. Foxes are certainly very expressive of that bond. Seems as if most people who really learn about animals have respect and affection for them.

So very true. Until we spend time with animals, we have no concept of their intelligence & how they regard us within their world.
