Hi! My name is Kimi Van Wickle. At Santa Barbara Junior High School I am studying the San Joaquin Kit Foxes(Vulpes macrotis mutica). I have a a few questions that I would like to ask. How long does the average San Joaquin Kit Fox live without human interference? How long does the average San Joaquin Kit Fox live with human interference?
Question Date: 2004-11-29
Answer 1:

The average age of kit foxes recorded in a Utah population was about 2 years, but most recordings in Utah and California reported that they live longer than that, but rarely over 7 years of age.

In captivity, kit foxes have been known to live as long as 10 years. You might like to check out this web-site on wikipedia:
