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

    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.

    Thank you very much. P. griseus it is.
