The European red fox (vulpes vulpes), is a highly adaptable, opportunistic omnivorous mammal characterised by its big ears, bushy tail and reddish-brown coats. The red fox is an introduced pest specie in Australia, originating in North America, Europe, Asia and North Africa. The red fox was brought to Australia for by British colonies for recreational hunting as early as 1855 and from then the fox rapidly spread across the southern area's of Australia, except for Tasmania, coinciding with the distribution rabbits, as they are the key prey of the red fox. Within 20 years, the red fox had achieved pest status in Australia. This species rapid spread was reliant on the lack of natural predators in Australian, only having only the dingoes and Tasmanian devil to compete for food in certain areas like Tasmania, where the fox populations seem to be supressed. Their introduction has been the reason for the extinction and decline of many native Australian species, especially terrestrial mammals including the Long-nosed

The animal I was given for this assignment was the Channel Island Fox. They are considered to be near extinction animals with nearly about 2,500 fox left (last checked 2008). The Channel Island Fox is a type of fox that only lives on the Channel Islands, which is located around the coast of Southern California in about 19 to 61 miles away from the continental state. On a clear day in California, many visitors have the chance to see the islands over the shores. Within the eight islands, only six of the islands have the Channel Island Fox on their land. The six islands are San Miguel, Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz, Santa Catalina, San Nicolas and San Clemente. Each island has different features which has given each island fox a different trait compared to each one, but they are still considered as Island Fox.
As a quote by Seth Godin says, "[l]eadership almost always involves thinking and acting like the underdog. That's because Leaders work to change things, and the people who are winning rarely do." This quote accurately describes Francis Marions's, the Swamp Foxes's, life. Francis Marion grew upon a rice plantation in South Carolina. When he grew older, he was a sailor for a short while and then moved to another plantation. However, he was a part of the South Carolinian militia and fought in the French and Indian War. After the war, he returned to his plantation until the the Revolutionary War began.When the war began, Marion's first battle was at the Battle of Charleston. In which, British ships tried to take the harbor, but Marion drove

There are six subspecies of this fox, each unique to the island it lives on, reflecting its evolutionary history. They have many different names including, but not limited to, coast fox, island gray fox, Channel Islands fox, Channel Islands gray fox, and insular gray
but they terrorized the British Army in South Carolina and Georgia with a series of hit and run raids in the face of overwhelming odds. Marion and his men would strike swiftly and then vanish into the swamps. His tactics were so effective that he was nicknamed “The Swamp Fox” by one very frustrated British general.
The Vulpes Vulpes (the red fox) adapt well to suburban and rural communities. Large predators have been pushed away from areas with humans however, red foxes “took advantage of the changed habitat”. “They live in parks and woodland edges and red foxes will readily eat whatever is available. Red foxes are solitary, so it is easy for them to hide and escape people” (National wildlife federation https://www.nwf.org/Wildlife/Wildlife-Library/Mammals/Red-Fox.aspx). Red foxes can be found throughout the United States from Alaska to Florida. The smallest population is in the Southwest, where it is not common to see a red fox. In New York state, a lot of red foxes can be found in places like upstate, long island and new Jersey in forests and therefore

The myths and lore of the werewolf (http://www.livescience.com/24412-werewolves.html) had caught the imagination of not only the German public, but the whole of Europe during the medieval times. Such was the fear of this dreaded creature that people were burned at stake on mere suspicion of being a werewolf, much like the infamous witch hunts.

The thing of which I find to be honorable is the fox. For many a reasons do I choose the fox as the honorable figure of this piece of paper. The fox is honorable because unlike most people in the world today, when it finds a mate it stays that foxes mate for life. Also unlike almost all people in America, it takes only what it needs, never more never less. It knows how to take care of itself and if it’s got a family it takes care of them too. The fox may be a predator but unlike humans it doesn’t just go around killing for sport. It hunts to survive and that’s it. It defends its home and knows how to survive, sadly it is better at that then most people in today's world. In other words the fox is an honorable creature of worth mentioning. There
Everyone knows of the apocryphal evil that is wolves, hunting our children, killing our livestock, taking the best deer. Having a wolf hunting season seems like a no brainer, right? But what if that’s not how wolves are, what if they are innocent, so to say. Should they be hunted? The short answer is no. There should not be a wolf hunting season because many of the thoughts on wolves are incorrect; hunting would compromise wolf studies, and the population is already suffering.
Evan, son of Midnight, secured the leather straps of his pack, taking as much time as he could in doing so as he always did before he entered the bustling city streets of an unfamiliar land that seemed to threaten to swallow him into its roads and paths. Despite this being the place where he’d initially began his travels at, it now felt strange and new. Right before he would enter the city, partially to take up more time and partially because he felt the urge to, he looked up into the cloud filled sky and cursed to his parents who’d sent him down to earth. His father had been Midnight, the god of Pumpkins, and mother Isabelle, the god of nine tailed cats, nine tailed cats like him.
