Argentine gray foxes are small, weighing at around 2.5 to 4 kilograms, and lengthwise, they could go from 43 centimeters up to 70 centimeters. Diet of these foxes is made up of: rabbits, birds and rodents. Technically though, these foxes fall under the omnivores.
Breeding occurs in March, and when a gestation of two months has passed, 2-4 newborns would form the litter. In the way of caring for the newborns, both genders participate.
The Argentine gray fox holds long canines, its tail is very obvious, ventrally, dark brown while it is black at the other areas. The snout of the Argentine gray fox is sharp, and its ears are triangle-shaped.
They are social creatures and live in burrows or even dens found in rocks. It is not a safe place for these foxes, and I mean "absolutely safe", they are hunted.
Interesting fact: You may find it weird, but this particular fox is capable of eating geese.
