MocOlympics Round 1 - Earth
Category: Earth
About this creation
Hello everyone, and welcome to another year of the [LINK OVER THERE] --> MOColympics <-- [LINK OVER HERE].

To be honest, I doubt I will do much better than last year (yes, I'm very positive as you can tell). I'm busy with school and I am disappointed with this build for Round 1, so if I don't make it past this round I wouldn't be surprised, there are a ton of excellent entries already. Good luck everyone.

What is my entry about?

Although the home of any wild animal can be called a den or lair, the proper name for a fox's home is an earth.


Foxes can make their earths anywhere, so you might walk by a fox's earth and not even notice it. This fellow is hiking and notices a fox (more visible in the next picture), but doesn't notice the fox's earth.


Most wild foxes live for 1.5 to 2 years, but some in captivity have lived even to 14 years old.


Red foxes tend to be solitary, usually hunting alone. They can be active at any time of day. Their favorite things to eat are rodents, rabbits, and birds. As seen in this photo, the fox has caught a mouse/rat.


A female fox will prepare an earth before giving birth to her litter. As you see here she has prepared a nicely sized earth.


Foxes live all over the world.


Other interesting facts about foxes:
- A fox's tail takes up one-third of his entire body length.
- Some people think that foxes are quiet creatures, but they are capable of uttering unearthly screams when courting... I guess they're not different from some humans in that aspect. :P
- Most foxes build their earths in a wi-fi zone, and they are the creators of the famous browser Mozilla Firefox. They also frequently use Google Earth, to help decide where they are going to locate their den next.
- Also, studies have shown that when foxes have TVs in their earths, 97% of the time they watch FOX News. I guess it just proves that if we'd give rights to animals too, Obama would be out of office! :P
- For this MOC, I build two red foxes, which are the most common type of fox in the USA and UK. Some of the information included in this MOC can be found on here and here.

Thank you for viewing, I appreciate your comments and opinions.

Good luck in the MOC-Olympics!

Quoting Matt David Flare, take it in stride, buddy. The improvement you've shown lately is astronomical. I really loved this build, and you should know that it was one of our favorites among the judging group. Every single builder has room for improvement. Just remember it's a journey! Keep up the good work!
Thanks, Matt, I'll try to! :)

Quoting El Barto ! Okay, here's a real comment. Decent vig, but I'm sure you wouldn't argue it was your most impressive piece of work. I agree with Keith about the foxes, and a forced perspective shot to fix that issue. Anyway, very informative about the foxes, but not really feeling the Earth category.
Thanks for your opinion, Mistah Barto

The wolves are detailed.The vegetation growing on the rock formation is phenomenal, it adds life to the MOC.

Ben, I think you're selling yourself short on this one. I'd certainly rather look at this instead of another war-machine moving through snow as "winter". My only real nitpick is that your foxes are a littl out of scale with your minifig, so maybe a forced perspective trick might have worked wonders. It was nice to see that your minifig had a camera instead of a gun.
