How do foxes age?

Foxes have 4 main life stages:

  1. From birth to 3 months – baby fox (cub or kit). Fox's cubs are born deaf and blind, with no of very fine fur. For the first weeks they are entirely dependent on their mother. By the age of 6-8 weeks they are completely weaned. Baby foxes are very vulnerable and can easily become a pray for predators;
  2. From 4 to 12 months – a juvenile fox. At this age young foxes can already hunt with adults. Foxes can start mating at the age of 10 months, although some foxes don't start reproducing until their second year of life;
  3. From 1 year to 6 years – adult fox. For the foxes living in the wild this is the stage when most of them will die. The reasons are various: predators, illness, food shortage, natural disasters and habitat destruction;
  4. From 7 years and older – old fox.
