Species Information:
The red fox is a member of the canine family, which is not surprising given their doglike appearance and behaviour. Foxes can be found throughout urban areas, usually adjacent to a natural area.

Red foxes normally weigh in the range of 8 to 15 lbs, about the size of a house cat but their lush fur often leads people to overestimate their size. To go with this small size is an equally small stomach, which is reflected in their primary menu choices of grasshoppers and mice.

When born the fur of the pups will be darkish brown. By the time the pups are about three months old their fur will become more reddish orange, their ears will be well developed, their nose elongated and their tail full and bushy with the red fox trademark of a white tip on the end.
