The animal of the day is the Gray Fox. (Did you know: One of these clever foxes managed to find it’s way into my recycling bin as I got home tonight, and I caught it licking the remnants of some vanilla bean ice-cream from the container! [note: Gray foxes like vanilla bean ice cream?]
What especially sets these foxes apart from not only other foxes, but all members of the dog family in general is that it has the amazing ability to climb trees! Hence, it’s other name, the ‘Tree Fox’.
They are so agile in trees that when they climb down, they can go either head or tail first! And, it’s been known to make tree hollows a den for it’s litter, keeping them nice and high up off the ground and safe from harm!
