Wild Animals/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer general questions about any and all of the phyla within the kingdom Animalia. I am most knowledgeable on the predatory, reproductive, and intraspecific and interspecific behavior of megafauna, including but not limited to the big cats, ursines, hyenas, canids, and the like. I can also answer some questions about animal conservation, but please do not ask me how to rehabilitate feral animals. Virtually every state in America has a local animal shelter or rehabilitation center that serves that purpose. I would also prefer not to answer questions about hypothetical animal fights.

Experience in the area

I've read about animals for the majority of my life, and have researched and studied them independently and academically.


I am a few semesters away from obtaining a B.S. in biology.

Dear Paul Kim,    The animal certainly appears to be a red fox, Vulpes vulpes. The usage of "articos," would appear to imply an Arctic habitat, and the use of "silver fox" is corroboratory. However, "Vulpes
