Trotting through the snow, a fox keeps its nose to the ground. It uses its amazing senses of smell and hearing to track its prey. Soft fur between its toes muffles its footsteps. When the fox spots a mouse, it leaps forward and pounces, mouth first. With the fox’s excellent hunting skills, the mouse doesn’t stand a chance against this skillful predator.
