The Twilight World of Gray Foxes.

Camera traps are one of the best ways to see a gray fox, unless you’re willing to get up very early or stay up late. Gray foxes range from nocturnal to crepuscular, which means active during the night, dawn, or dusk. During the day they hide out in burrows or hollows, their small size easily allowing them to curl up and remain hidden. When they’re awake, they prey on small animals, birds, and insects, and love to snack on fruit when it’s in season.
