The gray fox is a carnivorous mammal ranging throughout most of the southern half of North America from southern Canada to the northern part of South America. The gray fox is mainly distinguished by its grizzled upper parts, black-tipped tail and strong neck. 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. It can climb branchless, vertical trunks to heights of 18 meters and jump from branch to branch. It descends primarily by jumping from branch to branch, or by descending slowly backwards as a domestic cat would do. The gray fox is nocturnal and makes its den in hollow trees, stumps or appropriated burrows during the day.
The elegant mount of a Standing Gray Fox is positioned on a natural piece of drift wood as though it were scouting the area for an unsuspecting rabbit or grouse. The base of this taxidermy mount is able to be constructed to either be wall mounted or free standing. Just be sure to stipulate what you prefer when ordering. The majestic Standing Gray Fox is the perfect specimen to display as an accent piece on a table or on a fireplace mantle.
