vulpes velox

Vulpes

Vulpes is a genus of the Canidae family. It includes the true foxes, although there are species in other genera whose common names include the word "fox".

True foxes are distinguished from members of the Canis genus, such as wolves, coyotes, and jackals, by their smaller size and flatter skulls. They have black triangular markings between the eyes and nose, and the tip of the tail is often a different colour from the rest of the pelt.
