Here we would like to satisfy all you fox lovers. We'll introduce you to some of the most beautiful and fascinating foxes out there, don't forget to share your favorite!
1. Fennec Fox
Native to North Africa and the Sahara desert, Fennec Foxes are distinguished by their large ears, which serve to scatter their body heat.
Their ears allow them to hear prey that's moving under the sand. Their cream-colored fur helps them deflect heat during the day and stay warm at night.
2. Red Fox
The Red Fox is the largest, most wide spread as well as diverse species of all foxes. They are common throughout the Northern Hemisphere and Australia.
They are very agile hunters and have been known to jump over 2m tall fences.
3. Marble Fox
The Marble Fox is not a natural breed - it was bred by humans for its fur.
4. Gray Fox
The Gray Fox lives throughout North America. It is distinguished by its "salt-and-pepper" upper coat and black-tipped tail.
It's the only American canid capable of climbing trees.
5. Arctic Fox
Arctic Foxes can be seen throughout the Arctic Circle. Their thick fur keeps them from shivering in extreme temperatures, even as low as -94 Fahrenheit.
These foxes have relatively short legs and snouts, which helps keep their surface area down and retain heat.
6. Silver Fox
The Silver Fox is actually the same species as the red fox, and they just have different colouration. They had been one of the most valuable furs in the history of fur farming.
7. Cross Fox
The Cross Fox is another color variant of the Red Fox. It is most common in North America.
