Young Foxes Playing - Pure Joy!

Three young Gray Foxes show how to really play. The energy - the pure joy of life - you'll wish you were a fox. I discovered a fox family whose life is centered around a high Smoky Mountain meadow next to dense forest with an old sour peach tree as a centerpiece. Mom and Dad are out hunting while the young ones born in spring get plenty of exercise and find the small, hard sour peaches endlessly fascinating as they pick them from the trees and play with them like balls on the ground. This is late August, soon they will have to strike out on their own. You can see them practice their hunting skills by stalking and sneaking up and jumping on each other. This is just three minutes but they go on for hours each night - such energy and joy!
