One, Two, Tree Foxes

Donna Martell of Suffolk took photographs of three fox cubs which have nested some 30' in a tree! While foxes usually burrow underground (the famous "foxhole" is based on their natural nesting habits - foxes leave a backdoor for quick escape, should a predator uncover their nest), experts believe these animals have chosen their treetop nests to escape the recent cold.

Wildlife expert, Julian Roughton, told The Sun that though foxes are good climbers, this was certainly not normal behavior.
