Dogs & cats are Carnivorans, that is, they’re members of the taxonomic order Carnivora (note that this is different to being a carnivore, or meat-eater). What is understood is that carnivorans evolved from animals called miacids, which were small tree-living mammals that looked similar to today’s civets (A civet is a small, lean, mostly nocturnal mammal native to tropical Asia & Africa). It is believed that 42 million years ago carnivorans split into the 2 groups, or suborders, that we recognise as cat-like (Feliformia) & dog-like (Caniformia).
CEO Olivia here & you may ask why am I yapping on about this? It’s because today we are sharing artist Konsta Punkka’s furbulous photos of wagnificent foxes & like many humans, Dot, Jerry Underfoot & I were asking is a fox a dog or a cat. Although foxes belong to the Canidae family, shared by wolves & dogs they have some interesting things in common with cats. Such as some foxes have vertical pupils & the ability to climb & sleep in trees. I think the tree climbing ability is something those felines love to throw in our dog faces. BOL.
Now that we have cleared that up, lets take a look at Punkka’s furbulous foxes.
Do you see a dog or cat when you look at these pawsome foxes? Want to sniff out more of Konsta Punkka’s work? You can on Instagram. If interested in how he was able to take these wooftastic pieces check out his pawtacular YouTube video.
Have a pawsome weekend. Remember to be gnawsome, be kind & stay safe.
CEO Olivia, with Dot & Jerry Underfoot 🐾💜🐾
