Endanger species

Gray Fox

The gray fox is the only canine that climbs trees. They will jump from limb to limb in pursuit of squirrels and small birds, and, on occasion, have denned in a hollow of a tree. More commonly they den under rocks or fallen logs, hollow logs, or abandoned gopher holes.


Gray fox are nocturnal and have adapted well to urban environments that have replaced their former habitats.
