What better way to celebrate Fat Tuesday than with a fox parade? We learned about a fox’s internal compass. Did you know that when a fox is facing north they have a better chance of catching prey because they have crystals in their inner ears that they can line up with magnetic north. They can then take a bearing of where the animal squeeks are coming from. We watched the most excellent video below about a fox hunting in the snowy depths with its internal compass. Check it out!
For our craft today we made Mardis Gras festive masks, grabbed our noise makers and paraded down the trail to give the foxes a treat. Besides it being very cold for us (and the Green Anoles); it was a fun festive fiesta for friends and foxes!
