When a fox makes a sandwich on video in Chernobyl, Ukraine, you almost have to wonder if this animal is some sort of mutation that gave it enhanced intelligence based upon the leftover background radiation from the nuclear meltdown that occurred years ago. But if the so-called Chernobyl fox is the new ninja turtle of the vulpine branch of the canine family, then apparently it did not take any secret any secret ooze for us to learn “what does the fox eat.”
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Chernobyl has been causing a nuclear threat in Europe since forest fires are spreading radioactive particles throughout the air.
What does the fox say? That’s so blase nowadays, it’s all about fox makes sandwich. A news crew from Radio Free Europe was visiting the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster when they ran into the wily fox. Because humans rarely visit the contamination zone since the 1986 disaster, the fox did not seem very afraid of them at all.
The crew had brought food with them for the trip, and someone thought it would be a good idea to feed the fox, since any food found in the area would be contaminated with radiation. You would think the wild animal would simply wolf down whatever was put in front it, but instead the fox makes a sandwich by stacking the individual pieces with its mouth. When the fox had finished packing all five layers into its mouth, it disappeared in the wild never to be seen again (except for on video, over and over again).
For those wanting to know a little science, we actually can answer the common question: what does the fox say? The sound of a fox is apparently easily mistaken for completely different animals. For example, the common yow-wow-wow can be mistaken for an owl.
A fox sounds like other canids in some ways, but they’re not nearly as varied as a typical dog. Foxes tend to produce very quick series of high pitched barks that are used to identify each other and alert each other to danger.
Their scream-like howl is used during mating season and, quite frankly, it sounds like an animal being tortured.
Personally, one might rather listen to “gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding” than what the fox actually says.
So while a fox may only be able to make a common yip, if a fox makes a sandwich it tends to be little bit less common, radiation-powered or not.
