A fox is an animal belonging to any one of about 27 species (of which only 12 actually belong to the Vulpes genus, or "true foxes") of small to medium-sized canids, characterized by possessing a long, narrow snout, and a bushy tail, or brush. By far the most common and widespread species of fox is the red fox (Vulpes vulpes), although various species are found on almost every continent. The presence of fox-like carnivores all over the globe has led to their appearance in both popular culture and folklore.

The Modern English "fox" is Old English, and comes from the Proto-Germanic word fukh meaning "tail of it" and refers to the up and down "bounce" or flickering of its tail.
