At first glance it appears to be a small coyote.
Look closer, and it seems almost like a cross between a coyote and a bobcat, oddly feline in its face and movements.
Then you see the tail, long and luxuriously full, and you know it can only be a fox.
The Gray Fox is the only North American canid that can climb trees! They even like to live in trees for safety.
He makes a handsome addition to my menagerie.
