Stone cold fox. Sly as a fox. Don’t let the fox guard the henhouse.
There are a lot of idioms about foxes. A lot of them refer to a person being clever or sneaky. Others are used to describe a beautiful person. Even the word vixen, which has been used to describe an attractive female, is actually the name of a female fox.
What does all of this say about foxes?
Well, probably that they’re beautiful animals that are also wily.
But how apt is that description? Have they earned their reputation? How much do you really know about these lovely animals?
Well, we’ve put together a fun way to establish just how fox-savvy you are! How? Through a quiz, of course! But there’s a twist. Instead of true/false or multiple choice, we’re tasking you with finding the lie in the statements about foxes.
Good luck, and don’t forget to share your score with your friends!
