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.
There you go! 100% Gray Fox! The gray fox is the only species of fox that I know can climb trees. What you are looking at above is a Gray Foxes Summer pelt, until winter arrives it become much more fluffy. Maybe you might contact your local zoo and ask about it, do some research on google, real-life, or ask wildlife directories. I'll maybe update this answer later...
oinkies The Gray fox, also known as the grey fox (note the E) or the tree fox, has only one known predator, the bobcat. human also play a part in the grey foxes endangerment, but we are not considered a predator. We enjoy hunting them, because of there unique ability to climb trees, the branches give us a challenge and the foxes are usually left dead because there fur has no commercial value.
