Foxes

carnivores of the genus vulpes of the family canidae. There are 10 species found in north america, europe, asia, and africa. The red fox, vulpes vulpes, whose colouration ranges from yellowish red to deep reddish brown, black, white, or silver, rivals the gray wolf (canis lupus) for having the greatest natural distribution of any living terrestrial mammal besides man.
