Foxes often live in family groups and have a distinct and complicated social life. Only during the food-search, foxes usually are on the way as loners. They are mainly active at night and at dusk. To sleep, they go into its burrow.
After mating, the male remains with the female. The young are raised together. In groups, also rank-low members, usually descendants from the previous year, take over the rearing. Three to five young bring the the female to the world. They are suckled and are independent already after four months.
But also loners don’t live alone. It can happen that they share a large burrow with a badger or polecat. Mostly they then live together peacefully in their flat-sharing community. When fox offspring are present, however, the other animals are usually too disturbed and move out.
