Gray foxes, with their gray backs and distinctive black, white and red facial markings, are found throughout most of Utah in rugged areas with dense vegetation and old fields. Gray foxes have a gray tail with a black streak down the middle and a black tip. Gray foxes are excellent climbers and use trees as foraging and resting places. Their dens are usually in brushy or wooded areas, often in the shade of boulders, cliffs or trees and are rarely marked with mounds. Their diet consists of small mammals, invertebrates, fruit and carrion.
