A video has surfaced of what appears to be the first fox known to fish for food.

The fox's quick reflexes allowed him to take advantage of the spawning carp, snatching one up in a matter of seconds. The carp was still alive and wriggling, but the fox had no trouble keeping a hold on it. This

In a study published in August 2016, two researchers in Spain described an instance of a male red fox (Vulpes vulpes) stalking and catching 10 carp over a couple of hours. This is the first recorded instance of a fox fishing and red foxes are just the second type of canid — the group that includes wolves and dogs — known to hunt fish. The event was observed by the

It was an incredible sight to behold, ecologist Jorge Tobajas of the University of Córdoba recalls of the fox hunting carp one after another. Though he and his colleagues have been studying this species

In a recent study, Tobajas and Diaz-Ruiz discovered a new and interesting way that foxes in the area have adapted in order to survive and thrive. The foxes observed were found to be using a form of tool-assisted fishing in order to catch their prey. This is a form of fishing where the fox

The fox's curiosity turned into excitement after it caught its first fish. "The most surprising thing was to see how the fox hunted many carp without making any mistakes," Tobajas says. "This made us realize that it was surely not the first time he had done it

The fox's behavior of hiding most of its catch and sharing with a female fox is an example of its clever and resourceful nature. By storing some of the fish for later, the fox ensures

Foxes are known to be opportunistic eaters, which means that they will eat just about anything they can find. This includes dead fish that they may find on the ground. However, there have been reports of foxes actually catching fish themselves. This new research confirms that some foxes are actually fishing for their food.

It's not surprising that this fox was able to learn how to fish. Gable says that she would be shocked if this was

Wolves living on the Pacific coast of North America and in Minnesota have both been observed to engage in fishing behavior. This suggests that fishing may be more common among canids than previously thought. There are several possible explanations for why canids might fish. For example, it could

The fishing fox is a species of fox that is found in close proximity to humans. They are a common sight in many places and are considered to be a pest by some people. However, they are actually very intelligent animals. Scientists have observed the fishing fox and have found that they are very clever. They have been known to use tools to help them catch fish. This is an example of how much
