Sometimes confused with the red fox due to its cinnamon colored sides and neck, the gray fox can be recognized by its silvery gray back and black ridge and tip on its tail. It speaks with a loud bark sounding like a small dog. Their eyes glow and brilliant yellow-green if caught in a flashlights beam.
They are secretive and nocturnal resting at night in secluded places. Coming out at night to hunt widely through the night.
