How long do foxes live for?



  1. 0 Votes

    Around half of all fox kits do not live past 1 or 2 years due to predation, disease, and parasites. If they do make it to 2 years, it is common they will live around 4 or 5 years in the wild. In captivity foxes can live up to 3 times this long, though will still display strong survival instincts like food caching.

    Predation is a huge factor determining the lifetime of foxes.  Most foxes don’t live past two years old.  In the wild, they can live to about eight, but that is extremely uncommon.  In captivity, foxes live to about fourteen.
