Red Fox

Red Fox

Though it is called a red fox, this canine can be red, black and a number of shades in between. Both an opportunistic scavenger and a skilled hunter of small animals, the red fox has adapted the technique of sometimes catching its prey and burying it in snow or dirt for consumption at a later time.
