Gray Fox

 

Often called the ‘Tree Fox’ the Gray Fox prefers to den in hollow logs and trees, especially oak trees, but will sometimes retreat into underground burrows in Florida. The Gray Fox is the only member of the canine family that can actually climb. Active at twilight, at night, and sometimes during the day, this fox is more quiet than the Red Fox, only occasionally growling or barking as it flushes out prey.
