The red fox is the largest of the true foxes. An elongated body but short limbs is ended with a fluffy tail that is about 70% the length of the body. Eyes resemble cat eyes with oval pupils. They are capable of jumping over six feet high and can swim. Color of the fur can be red, silver/black and cross. The underside of the fox is cream with a white tip on the tail. Droppings resemble cat poop.
The grey fox differs from its red cousin by a grey and black cape and a black tipped tail. It is better at climbing trees than the red fox. Like most predators, it is nocturnal.
The coyote is like a smaller wolf. Fur is grayish-brown to yellowish-gray on the upper part of the body with the throat and belly a buffish color. Reddish-brown on the forelegs, sides of head, muzzle and paws. Usually they have a black dorsal stripe and a dark cross on the shoulders. The tail is tipped in black. Ears are large in proportion to the head and the feet are small. They can run up to 43 mph and jump 13 feet. They generally travel in packs or pairs but will hunt singularly. Droppings look like dogs.
The eastern wolf is smaller than the grey wolf. The coat is a greyish-brown with the back and sides cover in long, black hairs. A spot behind the ears is a slight reddish color. Skinnier than the gray wolf, more coyote-like appearance. The ears are in proportion to the head and feet are larger than the coyotes. Wolves and coyotes have been known to inter-breed.
