Introduction - Grey Fox

The Grey Fox, also known as a Tree Fox or Gray Fox, is a nocturnal mammal who can be found throughout many areas of the United States. They can be found as far north as Canada and as far south as South America. They are most likely to be found living in deciduous forest areas or areas with thick brush, swamp areas and thickets. What makes this animal unique is that it is one of the only members of the dog family that has the ability to climb trees. They are so agile in trees that when they climb down, they can go either head or tail first. Read the list of facts below for more information on their tree climbing abilities, why they are often confused with the Red Fox and much more. This information is written for both kids and adults.
