With a reddish coat, red foxes have an elongated body, a bushy tail which is longer than half the body length and dark fore legs.
Introduced into Australia in the 1830s, they are a pest throughout mainland Australia. The red fox is responsible for the decline in numbers of several native native animals.
This fox was spotted in a marshy "reserve" where water birds nest and breed. He spotted me and quickly retreated to the fence and soon disappeared into the bush through the fence. The fence is obviously not keeping him/her out !
