Scientists who examined the skulls of over 100 red foxes found that the city-dwelling canines have evolved to have a smaller brain size capacity as well as a wider-shaped snout to help them forage for food better in an urban habitat. Taken together, these “doglike traits” form a potential path to domestication. Researchers are also finding out that with coronavirus quarantine measures still in effect to varying degrees across the U.K., sightings of red foxes are becoming increasingly common in cities where they have made themselves at home. “We wondered whether this change in lifestyle was related to adaptive differences between urban and rural populations of red foxes,” said Dr. Barker said.

Image copyright Universal Images Group/Getty Images A young Arctic fox has walked across the ice from Norway's Svalbard islands to northern Canada in an epic journey, covering 3,506 km (2,176 miles) in 76 days.
"The fox's journey has left scientists speechless," according to Greenland's Sermitsiaq newspaper. Researchers at Norway's Polar Institute fitted the young female with a GPS tracking device and freed her into the wild in late March last year on the east coast of Spitsbergen, the Svalbard archipelago's main island. The fox was under a year old when she set off west in search of food, reaching Greenland just 21 days later - a journey of 1,512 km - before trudging forward on the second leg of her trek.
