Red fox

The red fox (Vulpes Vulpes) is the largest of the true foxes and the most abundant in the wild member of the Carnivora, being present across the entire Northern hemisphere from the Arctic circle to North Africa, North America and Eurasia. Its range has increased alongside human expansion, having been introduced to Australia, where it is considered harmful to native mammal and bird populations. Due to its presence in Australia, it is considered to be one of the 100 worst invasive species. European rabbits have also been introduced to Australia and are also one of the 100 worst species. In the movie Zootopia, Judy Hopps is a European rabbit. This is a European red fox (Vulpes Vulpes Crucigera) photographed at the British wildlife centre in Surrey, England. Although the red fox tends to kill smaller predators, including other fox species, it is vulnerable to attack from larger predators such as wolves, coyotes, golden jackals, bears, and medium and large sized felines such as lynxes and wildcats. I think Nick Wilde is a European red fox. Red foxes have 45 subspecies such as Scandinavians, Europeans, Americans, Japanese, Sakhalin, Koreans, North Africans, and other subspecies.
