Can gray foxes climb trees?

Yes, gray foxes can usually climb trees. It's not really natural instinct though. They have to be taght. It's a little llike passed down generation tricks. However most red foxes can not. The only red foxes that can climb trees are some of the ones that live around gray foxes. I suppose in a sense the grays taught the reds how to climb. Foxes aren't as good of climbers as most cats and squirrels, etc., but they can climb fairly well. Actually foxes are the only canids with true climbing ability, except the raccoon dog, which isn't native to North America, atleast I dont think so. Gray foxes and some red foxes can climb.
