@marg - nice photo but it's a side-striped jackal  :) . Duba Plains has a healthy population of these and bat-eared foxes.

I never get tired of looking at fox pictures (which is why it's my avatar :) ). 

 

So, here are a few of mine:

 

Red Fox vixen and kit.  We waiting for 3 hours in the cold drizzle in Grand Teton National Park (a city park in nearby Jackson actually) for our very first fox sighting.  It was worth the wait even though this was the only decent picture:

DSC_7193_edited-1-M.jpg

 

 

My one and only keeper picture of gray foxes.  This was taken on the road leaving Chan Chich Lodge in Belize.  I would like to blame the poor quality on the fact that the picture was taken through a dirty windshield.  But, it's more likely that my hands were shaking with excitement since these were the first gray foxes we had ever seen.

Finally, here is a shot from this past June in Yellowstone.  We hired a guide to take us to a private fox den and were rewarded with a 1/2 hour watching this playful kit pouncing and digging.  It was fantastic!

This gray fox was spotted in the ruins of an ancient Mayan city of Xelha  not far from eastern coast of Mexico about 90 miles south of Cancun.  According to Wikipedia, they are normally nocturnal animals who den high in trees.  Their ability to climb is only shared with one Asian raccoon dog among canids.    We didn't see him climb, but his strong,hooked claws allow him to climb vertical trunks to heights of 18 meters and jump from branch to branch.  It was in the middle of the afternoon when we watched him, just sniffing along the ground and munching as he went.

~ Hi, @Terry!

 

What a STUNNING image!

 

I mean, WOW! Hats off in admiration for such a superb portrait.

 

Other than a few bat-eared foxes seen running at a great distance in Amboseli National Park, I've never seen a fox in the wild in my life.

 

Your truly lovely image is wonderful, @Terry! Many thanks for sharing it, and for providing the helpful background information, none of which I knew.

 

                With Appreciation,

 

                                             Tom K.

@Terry - while Gray Foxes are adept at tree climbing, to my knowledge they don't den in trees. That would be asking for trouble for their kits from Raccoons, Great Horned Owls, Bobcats, and many other arboreal or avian predators.

Thanks for the update, @offshorebirder .  Per Wikipedia, I should have said they "den in hollow trees".  The way I wrote it, it does sound like they den out on branches like birds or squirrels.

Taken this winter in my backyard. It was snowing heavily so the quality is not good.

These photos of a young Red Fox were taken from our bathroom window this morning (it is in our neighbour's garden) in Birmingham, UK

 

gallery_45513_922_178230.jpg

 

We thought it was a handsome looking young fox and then noticed it moved a little strangely

 

gallery_45513_922_242957.jpg

 

The lower half of the back leg is missing.

gallery_45513_922_99827.jpg

 

The fox appears to get around well enough and the coat appears in good condition - so I presume it is pretty healthy. There appears to be no blood on the end of the leg.

Good luck to it!
