There were slight differences in the diets of cubs, juveniles and adults, according to Englund (1965a). None of the workers considered the nutritional and energetic value of the food eaten. Lampio (1953) suggested that there was a difference in the weight and identity of the food eaten by males and females. Subsequent studies by Lund (1962), Englund (1965a), Fairley (1970) and Rzebik-Kowalska (1972) concluded that this was not so. The method of obtaining the foxes did not have any effect on the weight and prey contents of stomachs (Englund, 1965a).

In the northern latitudes 39 it forages during the light hours in summer. Haacke et al. (1973) found foxes to be most active at dawn and dusk. Accordingly foxes might be considered to be crepuscular animals which forage in the evening and early morning, in synchrony with the diurnal rhythm of their prey, for example, of mice, voles and leporids. But in fact foxes often forage throughout the night as revealed by radio tracking and infra red equipment (MacDonald per. ). When foraging the distance receptors in order of importance were, hearing, sight and smell.
