CRIMSON & CLOVER'S STORY

Crimson and Clover are Red Foxes that call Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue their home. They came to us from a CAZA accredited facility where they were hand raised. Crimson and Clover love spending time together. Most of the time they are snacking on blue berries or hunting squirrels.

Did You Know?

  • What does the fox say? Foxes make a sound called a "gekker", which sort of sounds a little like they are chuckling or laughing. They will make this sound when they are excited are nervous. Contrary to popular belief, foxes do not bark or howl - but can make over 20 different vocalizations! ​
  • The personality of the fox has long been compared to a personality of a cat. They can be very shy, and quick to scurry off. Even how they pounce on their prey can be very cat like! The tongue of the fox is also very rough, similar to that of a cat.
