They’re fluffy. They’re foxy. And we’re not entirely sure how to describe the sounds they make. Can you guess what they are? That’s right—foxes! We believe that these gorgeous animals don’t get enough of our attention. Sure, dogs and cats are amazing but there’s a certain nous ne savons quoi that foxes bring to the table.

We want to make your week awesome and to fill you up with positive vibes. That’s why our animal-loving Bored Panda team has collected this wholesome list of full of photos of foxes being all funny and cute. Scroll down, upvote your faves, and share which pics you liked the most in the comments. Oh, and be sure to let everyone know if you figured out what foxes actually do say (we’re still a bit lost even after Ylvis’ song!). If you still need some wholesome foxy goodness, check out other posts about baby foxes and artistic fox photos.

Bored Panda reached out to the team at Help Wildlife, a British charity-run advice website dedicated to helping the public know what to do when faced with a wild animal that may need help, to learn more about foxes. “Foxes are very smart, probably a similar level of 'smartness' to dogs. They're not, despite the common perception, especially cunning though. Like dogs, they're really playful and can often be seen playing with random objects much like a dog plays with toys,” founder Sarah told us. Scroll down for our full interview with her!

“If you spot a fox in the wild, the best thing is just to consider yourself blessed and admire them from a distance. It's never a good idea to try and pet or tame a wild animal,” Sarah from Help Wildlife warned us. “It's ok to put a little food out sometimes but it's best not to let them associate people with food or to feed them so much or so often that they become dependent on you.”

Sarah also spoke to us about the possibility of catching some icky disease when being around wildlife: “With any animal there will be a certain amount of crossover between diseases they can get and diseases humans can get. What really determines the level of risk is how much contact you have with them, since any disease needs close proximity to be transmitted really.”

She continued: “So as long as you treat foxes as the wild animals they are and leave them alone, there is virtually no risk of you catching anything from them.”

i have always thought as foxes as wise, cunning, and beautiful creatures. many people think of them as vermin but they aren't. lots get hunted and put down in the years and they all deserve to live life free and happy

Let’s get to know foxes even better, shall we? For example, if you want to leave an impression on your friends, the next time you’re outside and you spot a group of foxes, you can tell ‘em, “Hey, that’s a skulk (or a leash) of foxes watching us right there.” +5 easy points to your favorite Hogwarts house, guaranteed.

Our foxy friends have whiskers on their faces, that’s no secret. But something that might just blow your mind is the fact they also have whiskers on their legs! Foxes use ‘em to navigate and find their way in tall grass.

There’s no doubt that foxes tails are beautiful but they’re not just for show. They’re multifunctional. Their tails help them keep their balance when they’re chasing down their dinner. What’s more, foxes use their tails to communicate with other cute foxes. Though we don’t know what they talk about for sure, we’d like to imagine that they compliment each others tails with their tails. And they wrap themselves up in their floofy tails to stay warm while sleeping. How cute is that? Very!

Foxes can climb trees and sometimes settle in their lower branches. They also have night vision like cats do. Furthermore, their hearing is excellent: red foxes have been reported to hear watches ticking from 40 yards (36.6 meters) away. That’s always useful for city-dwelling foxes to keep the time and to hear if any hoomans are getting close to them.

These animals have a varied diet that changes depending on their environment. However, red foxes are omnivores, as a rule. So they’ll gobble up everything that’s in their way, from roots and fruits to rodents, ribbety froggos, and even fish.

Not a bright idea. If the fix nips, perhaps out of being nervous or smelling food- you'd have to undergo rabies shots.
