    All the same Dog Fox
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    +1. Set your camera to video and you'll get a much better idea of the animals' identity from their posture, gait, etc.

    They are video pictures, although only a few seconds long. Not easy to see any markings as the ambient light in effect makes the light areas on the fox. But I have to say they all look pretty similar.

    I initially thought that the top two were the same animal and a dog fox
    But then despite the corresponding mark on the tail one is much heavier set in the belly and has different markings on its legs

    The bottom one is definitely a different animal but difficult to tell what sex
    Looks more like a vixen to me but then I am think why is it out and/or not with cub.

    haven't seen a vixen for months but assume they will be out soon
