The Gray Fox ranges from southern Canada to Colombia and Venezuela in South America. Since this fox lives in warmer climates, it does not have a double layer of fur, as other foxes have.
These foxes eat small mammals, birds, insects, fruit and vegetation. The Gray Foxs ability to climb trees is shared only with the Asian Raccoon Dog among canids. Its strong, hooked claws allow it to scramble up trees to escape predators such as the Domestic Dog or the Coyote, or to reach tree-bound or arboreal food sources.
