Gray Fox
Urocyon cinereoargenteus

Body length: 21 - 29"
Diet: Rodents, birds, eggs, fruits, and nuts

Shy and elusive, gray foxes are not often seen at Tonto National Monument. However, they may be common. Look for their small dog-like tracks, approximately two inches long, along trails and throughout the Monument.

The diet of gray fox in western states is varied, and includes prickly pear fruit, insects and other arthropods, small mammals, carrion, reptiles, birds, juniper berries, and acorns. They are most active at night, retreating to rock outcrops, hollow trees, and underground burrows during the day.
