There are four species of foxes in Canada. The red fox is the largest, weighing between 3.6 kilograms and 6.8 kg. As its name suggests, the red fox is reddish in colour, and it can be found in all provinces. Arctic foxes are smaller, and have heavy white fur in the winter and dark brownish fur in the summer. They’re typically found in Canada’s tundra regions. The grey fox is similar in size to the red fox, but is slimmer and has a black back stripe, speckled grey sides and an off-white belly. Grey foxes live in southern Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. Lastly, there’s the swift fox, which is the smallest. It’s about the size of a house cat, and is a light orange-tan colour. It was considered extinct 40 years ago, but 30 years ago, it was reintroduced in south-eastern Alberta and south-western Saskatchewan. It is now considered a threatened species.
