What does the Fox really say?

No doubt that one of the most viral videos on YouTube right now is Ylvis‘ “The Fox” which was an attempt by a two comedic Norwegian brothers to create a really horrible video for their tv show’s upcoming season. Beware of what you ask for: this crap video has turned into almost 50 million views. If you have not seen it yet, oh yes, you must….


And if you thought it was Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! or Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho! or Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!, then you would be wrong. In fact, it scared the crap out of us…


Our our animal reporters have found out many things about the fox we did not know:

1.) Male foxes are called Reynards or a “dog fox” or a “tod”

2.) Female foxes are called Vixens and  baby foxes are called “pups”, “kits” or “cubs”

3.) They have whiskers on their legs as well as around their faces, which they use to help them find their way

4) Their mating calls are sharp, high-pitched shrieking/screaming noises which can be quite scary. They call this “gekkering”…

5) A group of foxes is called a “skulk” or a “leash”
Now you know what the fox says…
