Welcome to Fox Friday, the weekly photo diary of a feeding station set up for some of the wild foxes living in the urban environment of Midland, Texas. The number of foxes living in the area is completely unknown, however, last summer the camera captured three foxes in one frame. Lately there has been only one fox foraging at a time. The one we see most often is "Old Crooked Tail," distinguished by a bushy tail that in a profile looks as if it's broken. However, looked at head-on it appears to be more of corkscrew than hard bent.
We have a mystery this week.
Now skip ahead one more day.
On the other hand, maybe there two Old Crooked Tails. It is interesting that two different animals in the same territory have that same crooked tail, one bushy, one scrawny. Siblings? Offspring? We just don't know.
Til next Fox Friday.
