Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve

Wild Gray Fox

In the deep woods at Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve, there is a little, thin and gray hairy fox. It is commonly named wild gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus). 

The gray fox is characterized by having a furry black tail, with long triangular ears and they are upright always. The paws, sides and the line from the chest to the ears are reddish to brown, besides its belly, throat and cheeks are white.

These curious inhabitants of Monteverde have nocturnal habits and are loners. Each night they show up to hunt rats, reptiles, insects, wild birds and some fruits. Their litter consists of 4 or 6 hatchlings.
Experience the cloud forest when the night falls down with our night walk  tour everyday at  5:45 p.m., you could be a witness of the nocturnal life of a gray fox.
