Description:
We've all seen the fox. A flash of his brushy tail disappearing between the gap of a fence, a blaze of orange caught in the headlights as he scampers across the road. We've heard him too, his strange barks echoing in the city night. Perhaps we've even come face to face with him, eyes meeting for a few moments before he disappears once more into the darkness. But where is he going, and what is his world really like? In this book, ecologist Adele Brand shines a light on one of Britain's most familiar yet enigmatic animals, showing us how the astonishing senses, intelligence and behaviour that allowed foxes to thrive in the ancient wildwood now help them survive in the concrete car parks and clattering railway lines of our cities and towns.

Reviews
Foxes ruining gardens in Worthing; vixens screaming at night in Chichester; daylight bin-raiding in South London? This book answers many questions. It’s an enjoyable and very readable corrective to much myth and urban legend. It looks like good science, too!
