Description

In northern Alaska a female red fox is busy with her newborn litter, while her mate hunts for them both. As the first five pups grow, they are eager to venture farther outside the den. But for now the biggest challenge is to decide who's boss. So the siblings begin weeks of fighting that will determine their place in the order. Only then can the lively youngsters play, developing their survival and hunting skills as they prepare to leave home one day.
