Majestic Red Foxes
The red fox is the largest true fox and it's a omnivore. This is not the only type of fox,  there are many other species of foxes. But you are reading about the red fox, it is a stealthy(sneaky) fox.

The red fox has an appearance of red and orange fur on its body. The fox has some black on its tail and  it has white fur on its stomach.


The fox is an omnivore, it eats plants and meat and hunts for food like sheep and possums . The majestic red fox  eats berries and other sources of food, they can find out in the wild.

Habitat and Where
England have them, as Red foxes live in Europe, but this is not the red fox that lives in America. They live in grasslands, forests and other areas and in the city with humans. Some people have them as pets.

England is trying to protect the majestic red fox,because people are trying to kill the foxes and there is a species called the city fox. Some people have foxes as pets so they keep the foxes out of the way of the hunters.
Special Features
Foxes can hear from far away areas and could hear constant ticking from your watch. 

I think this animal is different than others , and this is my Red Foxes info.

I watched and read on LEARNZ website to be able to get these facts from learnz wetland biodiversity- exploring a rare inland high country ecosystem. This wetland is in South Canterbury.

These are some facts about what are in the wetlands
Wetlands filter water.
Wetlands are the earth's kidneys. 
The wetland has many types of different birds eg  Kereru, Pūkeko and  Whio.
There are a lot of fish in the Wetlands like īnanga, tuna and eels.
There are pests like stoat and ferrets.
There are wonderful species.
Some of the species are endangered like black billed gull.
There are over 50 species living there.
 Wetlands are big ponds of ducks and birds and plants like flax and raupo. 
Īnanga are baby whitebait.
My next step is to know what different words mean

I have created a New Zealand Wetlands habitat and included 4 creatures that live there, two endemic, one native and one introduced.

The Wetlands have streams of water, lakes and grass everywhere; it's a muddy, cold place that acts like the earth's kidneys. It also acts like an airport, bed and breakfast, nest, sieve, sponge for the creatures that live there. It's a place for birds to refuel their energy and go back to flying. The Wetlands have flaxes and cabbage trees. The temperature can be cooler that areas around it due to the amount of water in the wetlands.

The pūkeko is a native bird it belongs to the rail family of birds and is a common bird in the Wetlands it's very social bird but can be very vicious and eats little chicks. The pūkeko is 51 centimeter  tall and feeds of the ground this bird is a flightless bird the pukeko lives here because of the food on the ground it can scavenge. The appearance of the pukeko is a blue neck and black body and a orange beak.

The blue duck/Whio are an endemic species in NZ they are very rare to find at the Travis Wetlands. The blue duck is about 53 centimeters tall the Whio is apart of the beaked family. They live in the habitat to swim in the ponds and streams of the Wetlands and eat the invertebrates. The appearance is blue body black head and yellow eyes.

The stoat is a introduced common pest that jumps around and lives in this habitat to get food of them. They’re about 31 centimeters tall and there apart of the mustelid family. They are carnivores and they also try to take down the birds to eat them one stoat took down a rabbit 7 times the size of it. The appearance is white and black tail and eyes.

The Black Billed Gull is the only endemic gull in New Zealand their 37 centimeters tall. This species is in critical state to being extinct they are apart of the gull family they don’t breed till 2-3 years old. They are also called Buller’s gull they live in the Wetlands because because that is where their food supply is. Their appearance is a white body,  black under wing, black tail and black eyes.

The Pukeko, Buller’s gull, Whio, Stoat all live in the New Zealand Wetlands
