Shouldn't this be at Gray Fox, and the disambiguation site at Gray Fox (disambiguation), since the military group was clearly namend after the animal? If noone objects I'll move the pages accordingly. --Conti| 21:37, Aug 10, 2004 (UTC)

California Gray Fox[edit]

I made the listing of the California Gray fox a refrence to a non existant page. I intend to create a page when I have refrences and can upload a picture of the stuffed one I own. Please leave the red link until I can build a page that meets Wiki standards Saltysailor (talk) 21:33, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Possibly useful set of gray fox images from California[edit]

I recently uploaded to Commons a set of 5 images of an individual, wild gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus grayFox cameo.jpg, Urocyon cinereoargenteus grayFox fullFace.jpg, Urocyon cinereoargenteus grayFox overShoulder.jpg, Urocyon cinereoargenteus grayFox backTwirl.jpg, Urocyon cinereoargenteus grayFox sniff.jpg), photographed in Swall Meadows on the E slope of the Sierras.

Is it subspecies californicus? Can you tell whether it's male or female? - seems like a very healthy, handsome animal. Would any of these photos be useful, either for your current page or for the planned one? Dcrjsr (talk) 21:30, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Gray foxes are mainly found in california, and they can climb trees. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.73.61.73 (talk) 22:03, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Need picture[edit]

The picture in the Taxobox referenced does not seem to exist - it is one of the pics mentioned in the previous comment, but it doesn't seem to be there. If anyone has a new one, feel free to upload it. Rohdeaa (talk) 02:53, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

“Grey” v. “gray”[edit]

While I prefer the spelling “grey”, this article was apparently begun with “gray”, and uses that spelling in its title, so this should be used through-out. We'll get 'em next time. ;-) —SlamDiego←T 05:16, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Which fox is dominant?[edit]

The current sentence disagrees with the line following it, "Prior to European colonization of North America, the red fox was found primarily in boreal forest and the gray fox in deciduous forest, but now the red fox is dominant in most of the eastern United States since they are the more adaptable species to development and urbanization.[18] In areas where both red and gray foxes exist, the gray fox is dominant. [19]" The red fox isn't dominant wherever the two species overlap if red fox is dominant in the eastern US. Can anyone improve it? Paddling bear (talk) 21:53, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
