Red Fox Kits, Red Fox Kits nursing, Nature, Wildlife, Outdoors, Barrie, Ontario, Canada, North America
This was the smaller of the two Fox Kits that had moved in to share the same Den. Earlier the larger Fox Kits had nursed and had sucked her dry in seconds. This is the mom of the younger Kits and the other mom had previously weaned her Kits but they were happy to take up nursing again when the opportunity presented itself.
