We met another resident of the woods around camp- the red fox. These canines are known for being clever and sneaky. We just think they are cool.

You can hear the fox around Lake Salamander chatter. These gorgeous animals often get a bad wrap, but that is very much undeserved. They are one of the most successful members of the canine family and can be found on 5 continents.
