Grey Fox

The grey fox is only about 5-10 lbs. and eat things such as mice, rats, rabbits, insects, acorns, berries, and birds.  Foxes can be active during the day, but they are much more so at night.  They tend to hide when spotted by a human or other predator.  Young are born in the spring with the parents mating for life.  Foxes usually den in a burrow, under rocks, or in a log.

Interesting facts:

  • It is not unusual for the fox to climb a fence or tree as they are adept at climbing.
  • Foxes create a cache for later if they have collected more food than is necessary.
  • This fox can retract its claws in much the same fashion as a housecat.
