Flora and Fauna Friday - Red Fox

Flora and Fauna Friday - Red Fox

Red Fox (Vulpes Vulpes) is a small canid (a biological family of carnivorous and omnivorous mammals that includes wolves, foxes, jackals, coyotes and the domestic dog) native to much of North America including the Missouri Ozarks.

I saw one in the pasture south of our cabin on Monday of this week. Beautiful, actually; with a great long tail, looked very healthy. We stood and stared at each other, as I was on my walk. After a few moments, he bounded back into the woods nearby.
