The Red Fox is also known as Vulpes vulpes. Red fox reproduce once a year during the spring. A few months before the spring the reproductive organs change shape and size. During reproduction, copulation occurs. Copulation is when the male mounts on top of the female. The average litter size is about five kits. Kits are born blind, deaf, and toothless. Mothers care for the kits, but if the mother dies before the kits become independent then the father becomes their provider.
