Episode 39: Red Foxes

July 7, 2021

We haven't talked about red foxes since episode 17, way back in the "Two Minutes" days for this podcast. Today, we interview fox researcher Patrick Cross and discuss behaviors, genetics, the trickster foxes of legend, and much more. We dedicate this episode to Rex, our 12-year-old fox who passed away shortly after the interview was recorded.
