Have you ever wondered what foxes sound like? Since foxes are often regarded as one of the most elusive animals in the wild, most people just adore their majestic figure through photos. Therefore, many people barely have any idea what one sounds like.
What does the fox say?
In 2013, Bard Ylvisaaker, also known as the singer Ylvis, and a group of songwriters came up with a song about the mystery of the fox called “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)”. Though they claimed that it was supposed to be comedic first, and music second, the 2013 song instantly became a hit because of its catchy tune and electronic vibe.
If you would look at its lyrics, Ylvis hilariously speculates what a fox probably sounds like. It ranges from the silly “Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!” to the improbable “Wa-wa-way-do, wub-wid-bid-dum-way-do, wa-wa-way-do,” and of course with the most popular of the lyrics, “Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding.”
So what does the fox sound like?
If you’re looking for answers on the internet, then it would be probably best to check this video out.
Mikayla Raines, the founder of the nonprofit rescue organization called SaveAFox, posted a video on YouTube about two of their red foxes chatting. At the start of the video, we can see Muttias, the grey variant of the red fox species, bugging the cat in the yard. Another red fox with a red coat then appears in the scene. Her name is Dixie.
Dixie laid on the green grass near Muttias and she just started making noises. It seemed like Dixie was sharing a funny story or something, and Raines was just there to witness them.
Dixie was quite the chatterbox whereas Muttias was just wagging his tail, seemingly hoping to get his turn to talk. Dixie sounded more like a laughing hyena, muttering sharp he-he-hes. The only part of the lyrics from the song that came close to the sound was the “A-hee-ahee ha-hee” sound.
Meanwhile, two other foxes were playing tag on the other side of the pen.
As Dixie and Muttias were playfully chatting, two other foxes were chasing one another on the other side. These silly foxes had so much fun running around the peaceful yard that Raines provided for them, and it is just wonderful to see how happy they are.
Do you have any idea what Dixie and Muttias were talking about?
As Raines posted the video on YouTube, she asked commenters to drop their guesses in the comment section of what the foxes were talking about. One of the topmost comments suggested that it may be about their silly plan for world domination, which is funny because most of the people think they’re cute.
“Alternative Text: Foxes Planning On World Domination.”
Some netizens also jokingly talked about how Dixie was clearly doing the heavy lifting in the conversation.
“Didn’t Dixie’s back hurt for carrying all the conversation?” one user wrote.
Since so many people were curious about what foxes sounded like, the video racked up over 2 million views and 120,000 likes.
Whether the foxes are talking about world domination or a random cheesy joke, all that matters is that we finally know what they sound like.
