In this fantastic capture by Gabriel Ciora-Márkus, we get a candid close up of a fox in the mountains of Transylvania, Romania. I’m not 100% sure (maybe a Fox enthusiast can confirm?), but I believe this is a red fox (Vulpes vulpes).

The red fox is the largest of the true foxes and the most geographically spread member of the Carnivora, being distributed across the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, Central America and Asia. [Source]

As for the post title’s play on ‘what does the fox say‘, the song by Ylvis has 341 million views by the time of this posting. Considering it was only released in September (as a joke), that’s pretty staggering. It was also YouTube’s top trending video of 2013. [Source]
