The red fox, Vulpes vulpes, is the largest species of fox, with males typically growing bigger than females. According to the University of Michigan, they can weigh between 6.6 and 30.8 pounds and be 17.91 to 35.43 inches in length. Currently, the homes of these foxes include North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, with some also being found in North Africa. They can survive in a variety of environments, including forests, mountains, tundra lands and urban regions. Foxes living in colder environments in the north are known to grow to a larger size than those in desert regions.
The red fox is considered the largest true fox. This animal has a head and body length of about 5 ft, and that’s including its tail. The tail or brush happens to make up a third of the red foxes’ total body length; the longest tail that has ever been recorded is almost 2ft. The average weight for a male red fox is around 6.5kg, however they can be as small as 4kg and as large as 8kg (Wildlife Online, 2005).
