Red Fox

Vulpes vulpes


The red fox has rusty reddish fur with a white chin, throat and belly. The tip of its tail is also white. Red foxes look very much like dogs, which they are related to. They are shy animals and most active at night. They live alone until mating season.


I call this red fox "my back-yard fox" because he appears every now and then to eat the persimmons that are all over the back yard. He looks a little thin in this picture so I hope ate a lot of them because there are several persimmon trees in the yard.
