Red Foxes make perfect hunters since they have a well-developed sense of smell and hearing. The species can also boast acute eyesight. These animals are omnivores and can eat whatever is in sight. However, their favorite foods include mice, squirrels, rabbits, and other small mammals. When available, berries, grasses, beetles, fruit, carrion, etc. are also eaten.

Red Foxes hunt usually during the night. They are known to travel up to 5 miles in search of food. As a rule, they stand motionless making their senses work and detect the prey.
