Fun Fact August 25, 2020.

25 August 2020


A foxy fun fact or two today.  A fox is a member of the dog family.  There are twelve species of fox that belong to the “true fox” genus Vulpes and about 25 other current or extinct species that are also called foxes but are only partially related to true foxes.  The average fox weighs about 14 pounds. Foxes live on every continent except Antarctica. By far the most common and widespread species of fox is the red fox. The scientific name for the Red Fox is Vulpes Velpus and there are about 47 red fox subspecies.  Remember typing or keyboarding class when you typed the sentence the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dogs back?  That sentence has every letter of the alphabet.
