Foxes are inquisitive, intelligent, and known for their cunning. In Horizon, wolves and foxes may be able to interact to an extent, but do not speak the same language.

Foxes found in forest areas (taiga, alpine, and temperate forests) are wood foxes. Wood foxes prefer areas with ample small prey and easy access to water, with places for them to hide. Foxes found in desert areas (Eastern Wasteland, Fossil Butte) are desert foxes, and hunt lizards, spiders, and snakes.

Mountain Lions

Mountain lions are fearsome predators. They can be found in most of the taiga regions, but tend to frequent higher alpine altitudes. Mountain lions' favorite prey are goats, but in times when food in the mountains is scarce, they may venture into mainland areas to hunt larger prey.

Mountain lions may compete with wolves for kills, and should generally be considered dangerous. They are very capable of injuring or killing a single wolf, whether for food or out of aggression.

One of the most common small prey animals, mice are found in mostly every territory in Horizon. They are very quick and spend most of their time hiding. Wood mice are found most abundantly in grassy areas, but desert mice can also be found in arid climates.

Horses  

Eastern Wasteland Rare
Evergreen Forest Very rare
Strongwind Range Rare
Sundown Coast Very rare
Verdant Hills Somewhat common
Western Plains Rare

 

Difficult to glimpse, Horizon's horse herds are always on the move, migrating from West to East and back again. They sometimes ride eastward through the Eastern Wasteland to some unknown place, but usually move in search of fresh grazing.

Horses are large, and while technically prey animals, are very difficult for a small group of wolves to bring down. They are stubborn and strong, and one kick in the wrong place from a horse's hoof can be fatal. That said, they are skittish, and rarely act out aggressively toward wolves unless they feel threatened.

Eagles

Majestic and fierce, eagles roam in high altitudes, but can also be found near large bodies of water. They hunt mostly anything smaller than them, including smaller birds of prey, and have been known to pick off foxes. Eagles are generally unafraid of wolves unless their immediate safety is threatened.
