They live in South half of South America, and are the most distributed wild animal of Argentina. It is adapted to many natural scenes, in special the open areas and avoiding forests and thick forests. Foxes adapts to the human presence and the modifications of his habitat and is recounts to find it in agroecosystems and suburban zones. It is fed on rodents, European hares (Lepus europaeus), and tinamous (Tinamidae). In other zones also it eats fruits of tala (Celtis tala) and crabs. He is normally quiet but it emits a dry voice and powerful "guaal". It marks his territory with a penetrating scent that in certain way remembers to the skunk ones. Although it is hunted by his skin, seems not to be in danger.

"Foxes adapts to the human presence and the modifications of his habitat"
This may be a stupid question, but can they be trained to be as obediant as domestic dogs? I would love to have one of those as a pet. What does the tala fruit taste like?

Wow... so nice... composition and colours are just great
