Wild Cat and Fox size comparison

A couple of nights back I caught this pair of predators on the trail cam (Redleaf 1000) quite some distance from the house on the forest edge. As can be seen by the vertical white streak in both images, part of the long grass I’d camouflaged the trail cam with got blown down over the lens. It was quite a heavy storm that night so it wasn’t surprising and this does seem to happen quite often….

On the right can vaguely be seen a Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes), and on the right a Wild Cat (Felis silvestris). Because of their relative positions, the large size of the Wild Cat can clearly be observed. That’s one scary pussy…

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
