Question No. 13: Are foxes dogs or cats?




Foxes belong to the canine family, which means they are 100% "dogs"! However, these amazing animals share more than a few similarities with cats...


  • Many species of fox are capable of retracting their claws, just like cats do.
  • Just like cats, foxes have vertical pupils that allow them to see in dim light (all other dogs have rounded pupils).
  • They hunt like cats: Stalking their prey silently and pouncing it at the right moment...
  • They can climb on trees and sleep on branches.
