Gray fox Description
  Although it is called the grey fox, its coloration is not usually grey. Only parts of it are. Because it lives in warmer parts of the world, they do not have a double coat. They have a single layer of course fur. Their legs are shorter than that of their red cousins. They also differ from most Vulpes foxes by their oval-shaped pupils, unlike the slit-like ones that their cousins have.
