We can imagine how much you people love foxes, so we got an idea to introduce you some of the most beautiful and striking types of foxes out their so you’d know which type of fox is you’re favorite! The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) normally comes into mind when you hear the word “fox,” diverse and adaptive genus has species all over the world which makes sense since it can be found throughout the Northern hemisphere all of which are particularly adapted to flourish in they’re environments.
If you really love foxes than you have to think they look better in the wild then they do around someone’s neck. Then you will certainly love seeing all of these foxes in their natural element! Well, Fennec foxes, mostly native to North Africa and the Sahara desert, for surely distinguished by their large ears, which serve to dissipate they’re body heat.
These ears give them such good hearing that they can even hear they’re prey moving under the sand. The Fennec foxes cream-colored fur helps them deflect heat during the day and stay warm at night. However, the red fox is the largest, most widespread and, as a result, the most distinct species of all the foxes. They can be found throughout the Northern Hemisphere and in Australia as well. They are very agile hunters and have been known to jump over 2m tall fences.
The “arctic marble fox,” also a member of the red fox species, is not a naturally occurring coloration and it was bred for its fur by humans. Although gray fox, which lives throughout North America, is distinguished by it’s “salt-and-pepper” upper coat and a black-tipped tail. This fox is one of the only canids capable of climbing trees. The silver fox is, in fact, the same species as the “red fox” they simply have diverse pigmentation variations.
The silver fox was, at one time, one of the most valuable fur foxes that could be found ever. They’re still bred and farmed for they’re fur and can be found throughout the Arctic Circle. Moreover, their thick fur keeps them from shivering in extreme temperatures as low as -70 degrees Celsius (-94 Fahrenheit). These foxes have comparatively short legs and snouts, which supports them to keep their surface area down and retain heat. The cross fox is yet another color variant of the red fox. It is most common in North America.
