Eye Ear Nose Teeth (or How to Identify a Fox)

I’ll take a wild guess that everyone visiting this blog has a reasonably good notion of what a fox looks like. Assuming that’s the case, this simple photographic guide to how to identify a fox (eye, ear, nose, teeth) is unlikely to add much to the sum of human knowledge. In case there is anyone out there who hasn’t seen a fox (or a photo of one), this is for you. All photos were taken today.
