RENO, Nev. — Federal wildlife biologists have confirmed sightings of two more Sierra Nevada red foxes that once were thought to be extinct.

Scientists believe the foxes are related to another that was photographed this summer near Yosemite National Park. More importantly, they say, DNA samples show enough diversity in the Sierra Nevada red foxes to suggest a “fairly strong population” of the animals may secretly be doing quite well in the rugged mountains about 90 miles south of Reno.

A mommy Sierra Nevada Red Fox.

The Vulpes vulpes necator is smaller and darker than the introduced Red Fox.

By the way, as a tangent to this discussion, were you aware that all navel oranges are clones which trace their lineage back to a single mutant tree found in Brazil in the 1800s?

A more humoristic take:

However, as we all age, the population of Silver Fox is certain to increase.
