What Are Baby Foxes Called?

Baby foxes are usually called pups, but are also occasionally referred to as kits or cubs. Each year a female gives birth to a new litter consisting of three to 12 pups.

Foxes are a canid species, which means they are related to dogs, wolves and coyotes. Foxes, however, have a much broader area of distribution than the other canids and can be found in nearly any habitat. The body of a fox is adapted for agility and speed. Known for their cunning resourcefulness and big bushy tails, foxes are well-represented as tricksters in much of the world's mythological and folkloric traditions.
