THEY WERE FIGHTING AND WERE ALL LIKE ARRRR IMMA GET YOU BITCH BUT THEN, WHAT, WHY IS THE FLOOR SO SPRINGY. BETTER TEST IT OUT.
I have reblogged this at least 12 times now, but it always makes me so happy.
I can explain why they are bouncing! Foxes are brilliant hunters, absolutely cunning, and they have an EXCELLENT sense of the Earth… They need to, since they primarily hunt small game, like rodents, rabbits, weasels- creatures that dig in the ground and hide there. When a fox is walking, it is ultra-aware of the ground beneath it and if it feels a hollowness underneath it’s paws (a tunnel or borrow, etc.) it will leap up into the air and come down on its front paws with all its strength in an attempt to cave in the ground below and hopefully trap a small prey animal for supper. These foxes feel the empty space under the trampoline and are totally confused when it springs up instead of caves in. So cute.
