RFI: Patagonian Fox ID
There has been some question about the ID of a fox I photographed near
Punta Arenas, Chile. Is it a Culpeo or a Patagonian Gray Fox. Photo at…
Additional photos attached. Thank in advance.
Looks to like Chilla (P. griseus) to me as well. Most foxes you see in grasslands around Punta Arenas in Chile will usually be Chilla, not Culpeo, from my experience traveling in the area.

P. culpaeus doesn’t have black chin, so it’s got to be P, griseus.
