Most of us are familiar with nursery rhymes or songs for children, and the “animal sounds song” is one favorite that parents let their babies or toddlers listen to. Through this, kids become familiar with the sound of the dog, cat, cow, bird, pig, and a few others, which are frequently mentioned.
But how about the sound of the fox?
You’re probably one of the many who became curious about what sound foxes make.
You probably just realized that you don’t know what the sound of the fox is until you hear Ylvis’ popular song, “The Fox.”
The common animal sounds were speculated upon in the song, but what about the real fox?
It became a question for everyone, and that is perhaps why many tried to Google and search through YouTube to answer this.
As they did their research, many may have stumbled upon SaveAFox YouTube Channel. Most of us now have an idea of what sound the adorable foxes make.
Mikayla Raines founded SaveAFox Rescue.
The SaveAFox shelter is situated in central Minnesota and is the largest in the USA.
Raines has been working with foxes for more than a decade.
Having a mother who is a rehabilitator was what stirred her passion and interest in wildlife. With her mother, she would join annual wildlife rehabilitation training classes.
When she was 15, Raines began raising a baby gray fox that she found nearly drowning beside a lawn sprinkler.
Years later, she knew about the world of domestic foxes.
The domestic foxes are bred in fur farms for their pelts which are used as home decors.
Aside from taxidermists, the pelts are also sold to clothing manufacturers. The other foxes are sold as pets.
Though she disagrees with fur farmers, she has a wonderful working relationship with them. Raines rescue the foxes given to her by them due to injuries, damaged pelts, and those rejected by their mothers.
Raines has a great love for these animals, and she’s full of happiness taking care of them.
In the video, you will see her visiting the red foxes, Dixie and Finnegan, feeling enthusiastic upon seeing their loving caretaker.
She greets them,
“Hi, foxes! Do you want me to come to say hi?”
Seeing how they were too excited by her presence, Raines went inside their cage to spend some quality time. The two became playful and were brimming with joy to be with her.
Out of extreme happiness, the foxes produced a laughing sound, which is not familiar to a lot of us.
The sound became louder when she tickled Finnegan and gave him belly rubs.
The fox was so pleased with it.
While the other fox, Dixie Doo, climbed onto her head, waggling her tail. This signals enthusiasm and cheerfulness.
So, what does the fox say? The red foxes can make various sounds, including howls, barks, squeals, screams, and chuckling.
Raines no longer rehabilitates wildlife but focused on rescuing the captive-born foxes and other exotics. They are provided with all their needs and are well-cared for until they are adopted.
