Forrest - Red Fox
Weight: 18 lbs.
Forrest looks very similar to his sister Fern. If visitors can compare the white tail tips they will see that his is slightly longer. His quick and agile movements however, can make comparisons difficult. Another similarity that foxes have is of an olfactory variety. Visitors often mistake the rather pungent odor around the fox exhibit as that of a skunk. It is in fact fox urine, used for marking territory and during mating periods.
