We should feed voles iron filings and see what happens.

Much more amusing images than the article(s) on pooping pooches.

Perhaps it is the mice that are pointing north east.

I also liked this associated article which pretty much opens the door for us one day becoming immortal, or somesuch.

Big blue eyes, pointy nose, chasing mice, and digging holes.
Tiny paws, up the hill, suddenly you're standing still.
Your fur is red, so beautiful, like an angel in disguise.

OK, that was really cool.  And the bit about success rate v. direction makes it doubly so.  Crazy.  Crazy like... some kind of jumping...  mammal.

But what does the fox say?

This. The only reason that song was funny was the nod to "Crazy Frog" or whatever the hell it's called. And that was but the once.

They played that stupid song in McDonald's the other day. Wasn't expecting that. Of course my brother told me not took long ago he was in a McDonald's and they were playing Marilyn Manson so who knows.

I've never seen a fox. I've seen bears, moose, and deer. I've seen a bobcat and a blue whale. I've seen elk, feral pigs, and bald eagles.

I want to see a wild fox.

Thanks, Republicans for using NPR as your scapegoat. You tried awful hard to eliminate the source of interesting articles like this, that are based on giving you useful and interesting information, not just driving page views.

I once had a dog, who would seemingly randomly start digging in the ground, only to bring up a mole. I miss you, Honey.

Aww, I want a mole hunting dog.  Field mice is why I agreed to let my daughter get a cat.  I was almost considering getting my own fox.

I know the fox is just hunting, but that is the funniest damn thing I've seen in a long time.

I saw a wild fox -- the only fox I've seen in the wild -- by the reflecting pool in DC. The fox had run up from the Potomac River and really, really wanted one of the geese that were swimming there. I asked one of the park rangers if foxes were a problem, and he said that he'd never seen one in DC.


/Fanne Foxe -- Tidal Basin.

I have seen a few since I moved to Eastern PA.  The creepiest fox I ever saw was right next to I-78 in Clinton, NJ.  I was taking the on-ramp to 78 and noticed it standing off to the left.  It looked right at me and opened its mouth all the way, it seemed to unhinge, like a snake.  It continued to stare at me through my rear view mirror until I was going highway speed on 78, its mouth wide open.  Must have been some kind of world devouring spirit fox.

Or a fox yawning after just getting up from a nap and couldn't quite make out what he was looking at, but I'm sure you get that a lot.

The fox is hunting for his supper.

randomly encountered a couple (or one twice) in one of the neighborhoods i walked through on my way home a couple years ago.  had to do a double-take as there were quite a few outside kitties living in that neighborhood, but sure enough, fox...

How does a compass help find an accoustic target under three feet of snow?

Do bats need compasses to fly inside of caves?
