Foxy fun

Check out this smiling fox, who was captured using an abandoned conveyor belt as a play slide.It was originally posted at Metro UK.

Loving life: The fox zips down its makeshift slide Picture by Duncan Usher.

The four-legged scavenger was spotted by photographer Duncan Usher while he was in the German village of Bursfelde, taking pictures in an unused gravel quarry. According to Usher, the fox loves to speed down the chute and actually trotted back to the top several more times while he was taking pictures - was he having fun or relieving an itch from worms? Either way its a cute photo ^_^

Most UK residents hate the thought of returning home late at night to find the dreaded urban fox rummaging through their bin - I personally chase them off when they come sinffing around our chickens. But I still love the sneakiest of our British wildlife and it seems this little character would be most welcome by many others too : D

Another animal recently partaking in human-esque activities was one clever orangutan from Japan, who used a wash cloth to clean his face and cool down during the heat of the day. The amazing footage was captured by a stunned guest visiting the Tama Zoological Park in Tokyo and the clip has since gone viral across the world.
