Grey Fox - Urocyon cinereoargenteus
Life Cycle
Grey Fox Kit
A curious grey fox kit.

Not as much information was available on the breeding of the grey fox as there is of other species. They are known to give birth in a variety of places. Natal dens can be found in burrows, tree hollows, and crevices. One to ten kits may be born between mid-march and mid-june, although the average litter numbers about four. Although the kits are capable of hunting on their own by their fourth month, they remain on their parent´s home range longer than other foxes. Dispersal occurs between January and February.
