The red fox Vulpes vulpes is the largest of the true foxes and one of the most widely distributed members of the order Carnivora , being present across the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa , North America and Eurasia. It is listed as least concern by the IUCN. Due to its presence in Australia, it is included on the list of the "world's worst invasive species". The red fox originated from smaller-sized ancestors from Eurasia during the Middle Villafranchian period,  and colonised North America shortly after the Wisconsin glaciation. Despite its name, the species often produces individuals with other colourings, including leucistic and melanistic individuals. Red foxes are usually together in pairs or small groups consisting of families, such as a mated pair and their young, or a male with several females having kinship ties. The young of the mated pair remain with their parents to assist in caring for new kits. The species has a long history of association with humans, having been extensively hunted as a pest and furbearer for many centuries, as well as being represented in human folklore and mythology. Because of its widespread distribution and large population, the red fox is one of the most important furbearing animals harvested for the fur trade. Domestication of the red fox is also underway in Russia , and has resulted in the domesticated red fox.
Small wild and feral breeding populations have established themselves in the United States , particularly in Florida , Louisiana , Massachusetts , and the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas as well as in many other parts of North America, including southern Canada. The bird is predominantly black and white, with the back feathers being iridescent and glossy in males, while the females are more drab. The amount of white on the neck and head is variable, as well as the bill, which can be yellow, pink, black, or any mixture of these. They may have white patches or bars on the wings, which become more noticeable during flight. Both sexes have pink or red wattles around the bill, those of the male being larger and more brightly colored. The domestic breed, Cairina moschata domestica , is commonly known in Spanish as the pato criollo.
It sure has its ups and downs. Someone or something always has his attention and focus. Unfortunately I've been sort of seeing a girl who is basically a real deal Mormon.
Anonymous, You are definitely one of the the club. I don't want to make a mistake by leaving everything I have going on for me for him. It's a heart-wrenching story. Learn more about the LDS Church. What if love is looking someone in the eye and saying, "You're making the biggest mistake of your life. Even if the church believes a bunch of crazy nonsense, and she believes it too, I still really like her and would like to see whether we can have some good intellectual conversations about this stuff. My husband's simply daily things, like grocery shopping, cooking, waking up with me to make coffee in the morning-are far from unnoticed. The argument progressed to I do not feel comfortable moving with you unless there is some sort of "promise.
