Foxes, much like cats and dogs, do have whiskers. Typically, however, a fox’s whiskers are usually longer than a dog’s whiskers. In addition to having whiskers on their face, foxes also have whiskers located on their wrists that they use as “feelers”, much like cats do. Again, much like cats, foxes use these whiskers on their wrists to help move around in the dark more efficiently, it also helps them sense what is around them.
Thanks to their whiskers and good eyesight, foxes are very good at hunting prey in the dark. The pupils of their eyes have vertical slits which open very wide to gather light. Their eyes also consist of special layers that help collect light. With keen eyes for hunting, and super sensitive whiskers for sensing movement and efficiently traveling in the dark, A fox’s prey is no match for these creatures.
