Red and Grey Foxes are one of the most agile critters we handle. Red foxes are a copper/orange color while the Grey foxes have a mixture of grey white and some hints of orange in their coat. They have a very keen sense of smell, sight and hearing. Grey foxes tend to be mostly active at night and are omnivorous. They have been known to prey on over 30 different animal species and a few dozen species of plants. Red foxes are totally carnivores and are more often seen during the day, especially when they are hunting to feed some always hungry pups. Everything that is preyed on is taken back to the den and consumed. Both foxes are in fact “as quick as a fox” being very fast when need be.
