The Gray fox or Urocyon cinereoargenteus is a carnivorous mammal of the family Canidae ranging throughout most of the southern half of North America from southern Canada to the northern part of South America (Venezuela and Colombia).

No other canid’s natural range spans both North and South America and it is the only American canid that can climb trees.

Gray fox or Urocyon cinereoargenteus is mainly distinguished from most other canids by its grizzled upper parts, black stripe down its tail and strong neck, while the skull can be easily distinguished from all other North American canids by its widely separated temporal ridges that form a U-shape.

Gray fox or Urocyon cinereoargenteus ranges from 29.9 to 44.3 in. in total length. The tail measures 10.8 to 17.4 in. of that length and its hind feet measure 3.9 to 5.9 in. The gray fox typically weighs 7.9 to 15.4 lb.

The gray fox displays white on the ears, throat, chest, belly and hind legs. In contrast to all Vulpes and related (Arctic and fennec) foxes, the gray fox has oval (instead of slit-like) pupils.

Gray fox or Urocyon cinereoargenteus is an omnivorous, solitary hunter. It frequently preys on the eastern cottontail in the eastern U.S., though it will readily catch voles, shrews, and birds.

In California, Gray fox or Urocyon cinereoargenteus primarily eats rodents, followed by jackrabbits, brush rabbits.

In some parts of the Western United States (such as in the Zion National Park in Utah), the gray fox is primarily insectivorous and herbivorous. Fruit is an important component of the diet of the Gray fox or Urocyon cinereoargenteus and they seek whatever fruits are readily available.
