Young Foxes Fight for Social Dominance

Clip: Season 36 Episode 2 | 3m 3s

From the time they are born, young foxes are full of energy. You can often find them wrestling with and biting their siblings. However, this isn't just innocent play. Pups who are more aggressive edge their littermates out of the best food and sleeping spots, increasing their own chances of survival.
