Grey foxes live in a large range, from Canada down to the northern countries of South America. They are secretive, elusive animals that inhabit forests with thick woods and brush that provide sufficient cover. Although the grey fox is commonly mistaken for its relative, the red fox, because of the red fur mixed in on its coat, the grey fox has a unique skill that sets it apart from all other dog-related species—it can climb trees!
