Still at suck

Posted By on June 17, 2010

Although the cubs have been entirely capable of eating solid food for quite a while now, and indeed of choosing their own food from what’s put out for them to eat… or play with… sometimes, only the Milk Bank of Mum will do. Apparently fox cubs may still suckle up to twelve or fourteen weeks of age (so says Stephen Harris’s Urban Foxes book, which I am currently reading). Given that I saw the first cub above ground on 14th April, I suppose ours are now somewhere around the three month mark…

Doesn’t the vixen look long-suffering? I can’t imagine feeding rambunctious cubs with, by now, plenty of pointy teeth can be much fun.
