Foxes’ Tails Used for Balance, Warmth, and Communication

Foxes’ tails help with a range of uses, much like cats’ tails.

Reddit user u/Ryunysus explains in a post:

“Like a cat’s, the fox’s thick tail aids its balance, but it has other uses as well. A fox uses its tail (or “brush”) as a warm cover in cold weather and as a signal flag to communicate with other foxes.”
