For some reason Short Spike are frequently predated upon by foxes, perhaps the fox, like we humans, realised a long time ago that Short Spike taste so much better than Long Spike.

Because of this Short Spike are very cautious parents, covering nests of hagglets carefully to camouflage them before going off to graze themselves.

The average brood of hagglets for Short Spike is six, quite a high amount in a litter and compensation for the ones lost to foxes.
