In the wild, foxes eat worms, beetles and snails. They don't like to waste food and will save leftovers for later by burying them.
The male fox is called a 'dog' or 'tod'. It hunts alone rather than in packs, hence the saying 'on one's tod', meaning going alone.
What do they look like?
Foxgloves can grow quite tall. The bell-shaped flowers are a pinky purple colour. Look out for them in summer.
What's in a name?
Actually, it has nothing to do with foxes! It comes from the old name 'folk's gloves' given to the flowers because fairies were said to wear them on their hands.
