Met this gray fox at Cockscomb Jaguar Reserve
Gray foxes (Urocyon cinereoargenteus) are omnivores; therefore, seeing a gray fox with an avocado is not odd. Gray foxes are solitary hunters. They are usually seen hunting rodents, grasshoppers, beetles and even butterflies. Gray foxes do bury their food and mark it with urine or scent glands on their paws and tail – so that it is easier to relocate their stash and to ward off other animals.
Research has shown that a gray fox can live up to 10 years old in the wild.
