With every painting I try to connect with the viewer, to convey that inspiration and encourage their own appreciation of the natural world. Allan Hancock, Wildlife Artist. An opportunistic feeder, the fox uses its sight, smell and hearing to hunt. In the past, it was reviled as a chicken thief, but the fox has built up goodwill with farmers who value its appetite for crop-busting rodents and insects. It doesnt live in a hierarchal pack like the wolf or dog. Instead, the fox may opt to live in a small, tight-knit group, but it almost always hunts alone. It doesnt woof like a dog, either; its many calls include a high-pitched warning bark, a nighttime howl, a baby-like cry and a chuckling sound (gekker) made whenever the fox is excited or nervous. Canada is home to four fox species, including the red (or coloured) fox featured on this coin. Isnt universally red coloured (there are several different colour variations), but it is found all across Canada, except for coastal British Columbia and parts of the Arctic Archipelago.
