Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Algemene term voor verschillende soorten uit de familie van de Canidae, met name voor die van het genus Vulpes, zoals de rode of gewone vos (V. vulpes), die zowel in de Oude als de Nieuwe Wereld voorkomt. Een aantal andere vossensoorten behoren tot andere genera dan Vulpes, zoals de Noord-Amerikaanse grijze vos, de poolvos, de grootoorvos en de krabetende vos. Vossen lijken op kleine honden. Ze hebben een spitse snuit, grote oren en een dikke, ruige staart.
