Wolves and foxes are known to be part of the same family, which is Canidae, but they have a lot of differences that will make it evident to people what type of animal they are looking at. The fox is known to be medium-sized while the wolf is known to grow big. The fox also comes with a narrow snout but what makes it obviously a fox is its bushy tail.

The fox is known to be strong for its size, but it is still not as strong as the wolf. The ears of wolves are also less pointed as compared to foxes. Another thing to take note is the whiskers of the wolves. You may not even realize that the wolf has whiskers until you look closely, but the fox obviously has long whiskers that you can immediately see.

Foxes and wolves belong to the same Canidae family but are very different from each other. Size-wise, a wolf is larger than a fox. Foxes have a small body frame compared to the broad frame of the wolves. Foxes do not hunt preys bigger than their bodies but wolves will more likely to attack a human or any animal that is bigger than them as they are more carnivorous.

Their color is also different, and foxes are usually red while wolves are noticeable with their silver-gray fur. Wolves live in packs of 6 to 10 members with respective order in their hierarchy depending on their age, gender, and strength while foxes are okay to live with a maximum of three companions.
