About the Gray Fox
The gray fox resembles a red fox in shape but is gray with reddish-brown on its sides, chest and the back of its head. Its legs and feet are also a reddish color. It has a long bushy tail with a black stripe on top. The gray fox has pointed ears, a pointed muzzle and long hooked claws. Adult gray fox can reach 45 inches in length and weigh up to 14 lbs. Males are slightly larger than females.
They are found throughout the eastern half of the United States, the Southwest, and north along the Pacific Coast to Oregon. Their preferred habitat includes brushy, woodland areas. These foxes are usually nocturnal but are sometimes seen out and about in the morning or evening.
The gray fox is a solitary hunter and eats a wide variety of foods. A large part of its diet is made up of small mammals like mice, voles, and rabbits. The fox also eats birds, insects, and plants like apples, nuts, berries, and grass. Carrion is always welcomed.
Gray foxes have a unique ability not shared with other wild canines; they can climb trees, using their sharp, stout, slightly curved claws. They ascend headfirst and descend the same way.
