The fox is well-known for its overwhelming beauty, intelligence, and cunning. Red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) are known best by most of us as they are the most widely spread – their habitats include forests, grasslands, mountains, and deserts. However, there are quite a few of different fox species (all of which belong to the  Canidae family) that are set apart by their appearance and habitat.

Foxes are solitary creatures, but they adapt well to human environments and can be often encountered in farms and suburban or even more-remote urban areas near larger communities. Perhaps due to their complicated relationship with humans and their extraordinary character, foxes have a prominent place in many nations’ folklore and cultures. Here are 22 pictures that will show you these creatures’ glamorous beauty and natural charm.
