Coyote or fox?, originally uploaded by jahansell.

This has been the subject of considerable debate tonight on Facebook so I throw it open to all of you! Coyote, or fox?

I'm pretty sure this is a coyote. We have both at our house up on Sharon Mountain and a fox has much shorter legs in relation to an elongated body. Foxes also have quite distinctive coloring, either slate gray or dark chestnut red like a horse. Can't see the tail, which would help. Beautiful picture.

I think HHH is right. Coyotes are taller than foxes. Great photo!
