Difference Between Wolves and Foxes

Wolves vs Foxes

Wolves and foxes belong to the same Canidae family but are different in many respects. There are differences in the size, behavior, and hunting methods.

A fox is medium sized and comes with a narrow snout and fluffy tail. A fox is much smaller than wolves and is even smaller than all others in the Canidae family. Foxes do not like to live in packs but only with two or three companions. Since they have a small body frame, they only hunt small animals and do not prey on bigger animals. Foxes also eat insects, fruits, and berries.

When compared to the fox, a wolf is large. They have a broad and heavy muzzle. Unlike the fox, the wolf is much feared by human beings as they have a more carnivorous nature. Foxes are friendlier to human beings. Wolves live in packs of 6 to 10. They prey on large animals.
