It will include bird, small mammals, crustaceans, insects, berries, and fruits. At least 5 types of fox can be found in North American continent, but the most common type would be the gray fox and the red fox.
How to Identify the Tracks of the Fox
Just like the tracks of the canine creatures, the Elizabeth fox track will have an oval shape. The toe print will have a triangular shape. The claw mark of the fox will be noticeable in top of their toe print. On some of the substrate, the claw will not be visible, or it might be difficult to see.
For the red fox species, the track of their toes will be a bit obscure since the foot of the fox will be fluffy and the toe pads of this wild animal is relatively small. You might notice the chevron-shaped foot pad that will help you identify the wild animal in your property. The track of the red fox will measure at around 1.75-2.5 inches in length and a width of 1.5 to 2 inches.
The toes of the gray foes will show a more discernable track since the feet of the fox will be less-furry compared to the red fox. The gray fox has the capability to retract its claws. This means that you will not notice any claw marks if they retracted their claws. The track will appear smaller compared to the red fox. It measures 1.25-1.75 inches in length and 1-1.75 in width.

Most type of fox in North America will travel on the register trot. Their hind foot will appear on top of the front feet. The gray foxes are adept climbers. Do not be surprised if their track suddenly stopped in front of the trees since they prefer to live on trees.
