About Pest Animal Oklahoma City and Our Services:
One of the most “clever” and “sly” creatures in all of the animals world is the Oklahoma City fox.
These mammals come from the same family as that of the dogs, but are usually the size
of small to medium sized dogs. Oklahoma foxes do not get very big in comparison to some of the
larger breeds of dogs.
The Oklahoma fox is characterized by a snout like you would see on a dog, but is turned slightly upright, and has a flattened skull. The ears are triangular, much like you would see on a cat, and are pointed. Foxes are usually classified into two primary groups, those that are considered “true foxes” and the rest. Foxes are everyone in the world except in Antarctica, with the most commonly found species being the Oklahoma City red fox. This has 47 different sub-species and is the one that most of us are familiar with.
The Oklahoma City red fox is very sly and cunning and this has added to its mythology in movies and cartoons. Clichés such as “sly as a fox” come from the behavior and cunning of this particular species of the animal, and it is the red fox that is the most widely hunted for sport because of its superior intelligence to other forms of fox. The average fox weighs somewhere between 9 and 20 pounds. The smaller species can be as small as 1.5 to 3.5 pounds. The length from tail to end of the snout is about three feet in most species. These Oklahoma animals have whiskers that are not only found on the face but also on the forelimbs which aid in its ability to sense through touch.
One of the biggest determinants of how an Oklahoma fox will be classified is by its fur color, length and thickness. Foxes can appear in a wide variety of colors, including white, black, red, gray, brown, and brown. There are also some foxes that have more a sandy color, which is a perfect adaptation for living in the desert. Those foxes that live in much colder climates have much thicker fur. This is especially true in the artic form of fox. Not only does the arctic form have much thicker fur, but it also has smaller ears, a shorter tail and smaller limbs. This means there is a decrease in surface area, meaning it is less likely to lose body heat through its skin. An Oklahoma City foxes coat can also change color as it ages. The fox undergoes a kind of molting process once a year where the fur is replaced with a new coat for the year, and in older foxes this can mean the new fur can have a slight discoloration from the previous year. The molting usually occurs during the month of April.
