We live on Encina Drive. Lately we have had a large fox visiting and/or passing through. We have seen him/her several nights.  We are glad to see the wildlife coming around again.

He or she appears to be a gray fox, but it’s hard to tell in the photos. The gray fox is named for its gray, salt-and-pepper coat. It has a white throat, cheeks and underbelly, reddish brown legs and a distinctive black-tipped tail. Gray foxes prefer drier, brushy, rocky habitat while red foxes prefer more heavily wooded habitats. Read more about foxes in Texas here.
