Fox Dives Headfirst Into Deep Snow

Even under three feet of snow, mice are no match for this clever fox.

In a fascinating and popular video from the Discovery Channel, a red fox uses his sensitive hearing, full concentration and even the magnetic field of the North Pole to track his prey, eventually diving headfirst into the white stuff to complete the hunt.

The video was posted on YouTube back in July, but maybe winter weather across much of the country lead to its resurfacing (to the tune of nearly 3 million views!).

No matter what, we are happy to watch his impressive stunts — several times!

(And if you like this one, don't miss one of our other favorites for the year, when a sly fox stole a golf ball.)
