Making the change from mother’s milk to mole.
Sunrise: 07.27. Sunset: 04.19
This little fella thinks he can just mosey down into the den with the mole his dad brought home, but the little female cub has other plans; they end up tumbling down the hill, only to have another cub grab and run off with moley. The mole carcass soon becomes a substitute ball in a six player game of fox cub rugby.
The cubs know when a parent is near and will often be out of the den excitedly awaiting the arrival. On those occasions when the cubs prefer to stay underground, a fresh kill will be left a good distance from the entrance to entice the cubs increasingly further from the den.
