For the larger mammals, the fox is probably the most prolific and capable predator in the park. Unlike the grizzly bear, who feeds mainly on vegetation and sits on kills until the flesh is finished off, the fox eats for his fill but also caches food for later consumption (without guarding it in the meantime). Seen throughout the park and not annoyed in the slightest by human intrusion, the fox is most often seen hunting in his aerial fashion (so as not to quake the burrow of his prey). His coat ranges from the plush red to a mangier, grizzled appearance.
