Studied the activity pattern of seven radio collared foxes in a mountainous habitat in Switzerland. Foxes were mainly nocturnal and their nocturnal activity pattern was acyclic. Activity periods varied according to seasons, being shortest during summer. On the other hand effective activity did not vary significantly throughout the year. Fox active period was generally interrupted by several inactive phases, most of which were short (< 15 min.)
