Most foxes have a rather short life span of just 2–3 years. However, in captivity, with proper attention and care, they can live for up to 10 years. As per records, the oldest fox is a red fox that is 16 years old and still going strong. Most species are rather small (the average domestic cat size). Compared to the other members of their family (Canidae) like wolves, jackals, and dogs, they are really very small.

As a general rule, foxes have pointed muzzles and bushy tails. Almost all other characteristics vary according to their individual habitat. The dessert Fox has large ears and thus a keen sense of hearing so as to help him find smaller prey. Artic Foxes on the other hand, have small ears as well as a thick and insulating coat of fur. The oldest fox genus still in existence is the Urocyon.
