The Quiz: Fox hops, like the one in today’s photo, are technically called what?
‘Mousing’ is the technical term for the way a fox jumps high in order to surprise and get the advantage over prey like, well, mice. Adult red foxes can jump more than 6 feet high. While sailing high above their quarry, they can steer midflight with their tails before landing on a target up to 16 feet away.
The correct answer to this quiz is Mousing.
