A Red Fox Dives Headfirst into Snow in Search of Food

In this stunning video from the Discovery Channel Series “North America”, a red fox dives headfirst into the snow to search for his next meal. While he is absolutely adorable to watch, the fox is actually using an innate strategy within his environment.

A red fox pinpoints field mice buried deep beneath the snow, using his sensitive hearing and the magnetic field of the North Pole to plot his trajectory.

In other words, this fox is not whooping it up by thrashing about in the snow; there truly is a method to his madness.
