Silver Fox Spotted in a Colorado Park

Colorado is home to some pretty amazing wildlife. From bighorn sheep to bears, elk, and even moose, it’s always exciting to spot an animal that’s out of the ordinary. 

On March 29, game cameras at Staunton State Park in Pine, Colorado, caught a glimpse of a silver fox – a sight that’s far more rare than the red ones, although they are the same species. According to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website, there are genetic variations in foxes, resulting in four recognized color phases: red, cross, silver and black. While the red color is what’s most commonly seen in the wild, foxes in all color phases can always be identified by the white tip on their tails (though hard to see in this photo). Silver foxes make up about 10% of the fox population and can be found in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

For those hoping to see a different kind of silver fox…you’re welcome:
