Foxes, a highly intelligent species, known for their cunning and sleek ways. Foxes can be found all over the country, as well as in many other different countries all around the entire world. Foxes can be found from here in the U.K all the way up into the Antarctic, fox life flourishes in lavish, great depths.
Foxes can be found alive with the greatest of energy! Light on their feet, foxes are readily mistaken for the likes of other ‘dog like Canidae‘s‘ such as Jackal’s, Wolves as well as dogs themselves.
There are twelve species of fox, that are belonging to the monophyletic range – genus Vulpes or ‘true foxes’ as they are more commonly known. Foxes are omnivorous mammals. Meaning: that they have the capability in obtaining chemical energy, nutrient’s from BOTH – plant life as well as animal food sources. In addition; they can also process such groups in their digestive system like: algae, fungi as well as bacteria.Foxes are incredibly ‘social’ animals. They look in difference to their dog like counterparts, mainly due to their long thin legs, agile body, pointed nose with a bushy tail – simply beautiful.
The foxes habitat is usually that of the forested – woodland areas. However as many will have seen, foxes have also taken on an ‘urban culture’ too. Foxes can be spotted all over London, Kent and other urbanised living spaces where us humans have frequented. Foxes are known for constructing underground ‘dens’ – or burrows. These burrows provide safety, ventilation from the above element’s, along with the relative a fox and family require. In the interest of ‘fox safety’ the dens are also equipped with several exists – just in case the fox and family need to make a dash for it. (You never know in this wild world.) The dug out tunnels: of the den will enable the fox with family to evade any unwanted predators, should they make their way into the foxes habitat zone.
As stated previously, foxes are very social beings. They live in packs, which is known as a ‘leash‘. (This derives from the word and object – ‘dogs leash‘ or ‘to be kept on a tight leash‘.) Packs or leashes, foxes enjoy being around their family members, so when you see a group of foxes the chances are that some of them are related.
Foxes are known for their ‘scavenging’ of food. Hunting predominantly during the night time, foxes are nocturnal creatures. They have extremely good eyesight too. Foxes are good at catching their prey – small animals, as well as foraging for smaller food groups such as worms, some bugs maybe. The foxes main diet is the smaller animal chain however; such as – lizards, rats, voles and mice to name but a few. They will also complete their diet with food such as: small fruit, berries also some small birds too when they can catch them. It has to be noted, that it is such a shame that human kind will hunt foxes for sport and ‘pleasure’. This mainly stems back to ‘affluent bloodlines’ who deem such behaviour as a past time – it’s null and void in this reality however.
It is with a sadness in a way, to say that foxes in comparison, live a fairly short life all in all. The life year span of a fox being around the three year mark. In captivity however, they can live much longer – up to around the eleven to twelve year markers of age.
If you are privy to see a fox, or even a group of foxes – remain within the ‘quiet zone‘. Foxes, like all creatures will act in a territorial manner especially if their family or younger members are nearby. If you feel a ‘threat’ by foxes simply remove your self from their environment. In addition, if you feel that your own family are in a way of any ‘danger’ from wild foxes – please take the correct safe practices to remined the foxes that it is your territory, not theirs in case of gardens etc. If you are feeling in any threat from wild animals close your windows and doors. There are many natural SAFE procedure’s to take against such threats, if you so feel they are just.
Foxes are here, living alongside us. They are to be respected – not feared. Not hunted, mocked or even jeered. Be patient, be kind, understanding when there are some near… The silence of animals, mammal’s is the universal language that we all choose to hear.

Dolphins are a highly unique species, here on the mighty mother earth. Maintaining safety within our high seas, bringing living joy to the world, in beautiful warmth and serenity.
Dolphins from creation are from the family of ‘ toothed whales’. This family includes: Orcas and Pilot Whales. Mainly acclimatising within the waters of the continental shelves, from the shallow, more tropical parts of the oceans range. There is the number of forty – extant named species of dolphins to date. (Still in existence today.)
The name ‘Dolphin’ deriving from the Greek name – (delphis) as when related to the terminology of the Greek translation, transpose into (“delphis” / “womb”). Part of this translation can therefore be interpreted as ‘fish with a womb.’
In total there are six species of dolphin, which are more thought of as whale species, more widely recognised as ‘blackfish‘. Categories of such mammals also commonly known -are killer whales. All equipped with an amazing intelligence. This is incorporated within their mammalian brain capacity.
On the scales compared with other animals, dolphins have a slightly higher vibrational frequency than other animals / mammals of their stature. With a full brain mass of around: 1,500 – 1,700 grams. They also hold ‘spindle cells’. These are neurons which do not branch out excessively, us humans, great apes and elephants are the only other physical origins here on earth who have spindle cells. Having such spindle cells, points to a high intelligence level within the species. Within the human race they play a most forefront role in the structure of highly intelligent development. This intelligence is know as: Cetacean Intelligence.
Due to the ‘ego’ of mankind, it comes with a sadness that such dear dolphins are endangered due to the hunting that mankind carries out. Man always finds a way, an excuse to kill, slaughter the natural world, without giving or maintaining much, balance back to the natural eco cycle itself. There are two species of dolphin that are in mortal danger of extinction levels, with a further fourteen also on a ‘critical list’, due to human callous behaviour. A total of SIXTEEN endangered species…
Playful by nature the dolphin being more of the – ‘energetic species’ race, they continually bring warmth and love to oceans that they inhabit. Their intermingling with human contact is second to none. Dolphins – much like our canine friends,have a loyal, trustworthy nature. This also plays back to the intelligence sector of their genetic makeup. They are so good natured, that it is even on record, that they create games to play with their whale counterparts – this itself demonstrates the amazing uniqueness which these incredible mammals have.
Dolphins diet from the ‘carnivore’ food group. Feeding on anything as small as the shrimp, right through to such creatures such as fish, squid and crustaceans. Their intelligence once again, making them reign supreme, as highly effective hunters of the high seas.
Naturally, a dolphins relationship with a human in captivity to one where it s free in the ocean sea – is a little different. A relationship of one and human counterpart in a training environment is much more of an ’emotional’ level. Adding to the fact where dolphins are used within the means of therapy too, such bonds between dolphin and humans can become extremely strong. The instinct for instance within the dolphin species is simply this: that when a dolphin approaches a pregnant woman, they shall do so with due care and attention. The internal, maternal instinct of the dolphin being second to none!
