Foxes are small, non-aggressive creatures found in the wilderness of Skyrim, often chasing rabbits. Red foxes will leave pelts behind upon death, which can be used for tanning purposes. When approached by the player foxes will flee, and will generally only become hostile if they are under the influence of a Spriggan. There are three unique foxes, two of which are added by Hearthfire.
- With the installation of the Hearthfire plug-in, either variant can be brought home as pets by adopted children.
