  6. 6. Family Life Foxes live in family groups while the young are growing up. They do not form packs as wolves do. At other times, live alone or in pairs. If one of a pair of foxes is chased by an enemy, its mate may dash out of a hiding place and lead the pursuery astray. The young foxes stay near their den at first. By the time the kit fox pups are seven to eight month old they have learned and take care of themselves. A family often uses the same den year-after-year to rear pups.
