It was once thought that the fox was a solitary animal that didn’t build family units like wolves do. This is of course not true. The fox will build large pack like structures when food is plentiful, but since the fox does not hunt like wolves (packs driving prey) they are not able to maintain the structure when food becomes rarer. These pictures of some young fox cubs playing with items they find in nature are good examples of the animals social character.
