Two foxes dominance behaviour

19859 views Nature Lover October 21, 2020 Ottawa, ON Date shot: October 21, 2020

Starting in late September, family members of a fox group begin to leave and head off on their own. Some of the cubs may choose to stay with the family. Mostly only females, I think. In a group of foxes there is a dominance hierarchy. A subordinate approaches a dominant with its body held low. It often crouches or even wriggles on its back at the feet of the dominant animal in an appeasement gesture like one fox is doing above. It kept wriggling on its back. Fascinating to watch.
