Fox color chart Redux by Krissyfawx Fox color chart Redux by Krissyfawx
Download for full size! It's huge

Redid my Fox color chart from a little over 5 months ago for my Fox Avatars on Second Life. I included the rest of the colors I had planned, but didn't have room for, from my last one (file got way too big).

It's gonna be a challenge to texture all of these guys, but it will be done!

All of these foxes, except the bottom 4, are actual color mutations of a red fox.
Only the red, cross, silver, grey, and arctic foxes (summer and winter) occur naturally in the wild. All the other fox colors on this chart only occur through selective breeding.

Edit: The "Shadow" fox is actually a ranched mutation of the Arctic fox, so I will be excluding it from my fox av colors due to it looking exactly like the arctic fox, only much bigger.

I one had a silver fox follow me around while I was hiking exploring it, close too, like 20 feet away or less when I sat. I didn't have any food on me, and it never got aggressive, it just seemed, well, curious.

just thought I'd point out to you that they do give credit. After the group of pictures, they post links to all the pages they were taken from. Culpeo-Fox's link is in there, which is actually what brought me here.

Beautiful "collection")
It is a pity that most of these beautiful creatures bred by people only to flay their skin.

I had a past life regression hypnosis last month and I'm not kidding you, I was a red fox in my previous life and I had another life before that as an arctic fox.

These are really cute! Don't they also start looking more dog-like when they're selectively bred? I mean I've seen I think it's that platinum coloration on a fox with a curly tail (like a husky's) and floppy ears.

Yeah, I think you're right. There was an experiment that tried domesticating silver foxes (In Russia I think) & with each generation that grew more domesticated they started having those features.

The 'Shadow' fox is pretty cool! I'd take the Arctic fox if I were in Alaska. They'd be the messiest fox(whenever they shed their Winter coats), but they'd be worth having a companionship with. I mean, I'd think it's okay to take them in as a pet if they were born and raised in captivity or rescued.

I would bond best with a red fox, though! I don't do frigid, icey-cold anyway.

I actually do like the snow. I just belong in California(in the Southern California mountains; it snows up there!). I also am always changing my mind on all kinds of things. There are leucistic and albino red foxes too!

However, out of all the color variations, I cannot say I have a favorite. I also tend to frequently change my mind on my favorite color all the time! ^^;

I came to look at your chart again after I saw a burgundy fox in the wildlife park. (photo is already uploaded)
They told me he had been found in the forest when he was still a pup after his mother was shot. It's not allowed to breed foxes in Germany and there's no pelt farm near this city where he could have probably run away from.
Is there absolutely no possibilty he had been born in the wild or did they just lie to me? '_'
