Incredibly Cute & Fluffy Pictures of Baby Foxes.

 Philip Wang and his daughter Alice stumbled across a pack of baby foxes in the backyard of their Princeton, New Jersey home.

According to the source, the mother fox was just away hunting, so it gave Wang precious moments to snap away and take these incredible pictures.

Fox pups are generally called either kit, pup or cub, and aptly named as they look like a fluffy combination of new puppy or kitten.

The fox babies do not stay tiny for long, as they grow quickly and by 6 months are the size of a fully grown adult.

Foxes produce litters of around 4-5 pups and they are generally born in March or April. The pups do not open their eyes or ears until they are two weeks old.

The mother will stay with the pups until they are 2-3 weeks old, in which time the father pup will hunt and bring food to the den. If something happens to the mother, the father will step in to take sole care of the pups. Foxes normally have monogamous relationships.

Pups leave their den when they are approximately four weeks old, about the same time as their fur turns red/brown.

Seriously, is there anything cuter? I’m not sure that there is…
