Why are fox noses always so dry looking while dogs put incredible care into having their nose moistened at all times?
Do fox noses not overheat as easily?

Comparing to a domestic dog is a bit silly since the average fox lives in nature and in an underground den, so they're always exposed to dust. Dust also has the property of absorbing moisture, there could be a purrfectly wet fox nose hiding under the dry dirt crust

Canine noses are black, which protects the skin from exposure to sun radiation. The Dog is actually worse off than the Fox because some breeds commonly have an atleast partially red or pink nose, which could be problematic in parts of the world with lots of daily direct sunlight

Anon, they're selectively bred for appearance, specifically fur trade. Similar to how several bird species have been bred for appearance though as living ornaments.

As a general rule of sexual dimorphism, the larger and more different the males are from the females in a species, the more it is that males have to compete for the female's approval during mating season. Since in foxes males and females look almost the same, it tells us there isn't much competition involved in their mating game. Most of the time, foxes just pair with the first potential mate they meet.

Also, that famous photo is sickeningly oversaturated.

The Tibetan Fox is a fox that evolved wolf-like features, while the South American foxes (Lycalopex) are 'wolves' that evolved fox-like features.

Foxes best.

>A family of foxes moves in under it
>Now and then see the foxes bounding around in the bushes in the backyard when we are out there
>Little babby foxes wrassling while mom sits on the rock and watches
>If we are out back having a BBQ all the foxes laze under the bushes
>When we're done, accidentally drop a hotdog and go inside
>Get to fall asleep every night to the foxes singing

Fennec foxes are the same color as sand, Arctic foxes are the same color as snow, what's the deal with Red foxes then?
>>

i fought that thing in blood will tell
>>
>>4046818
Why did you have to get a fennec in the middle of pitching a loaf?

Anyway I'm not super sure but I -think- most animals a fox would hunt or be hunted by is red/green color blind so they blend in with grass just fine.

>>4036951
I wonder if foxes try to mate up with Coyote's like in the Case of Coywolves.
>>
>>4046818
>>4046892
Yeah, most mammals only have two types of color receptors, that's why so many are brown or reddish
Primate are the exception in that we have three

post a fox eating, playing, sleeping, or running, you're normal - but post one shitting or mating and people suddenly have questions

Good point though. Fur can't be green but if preds are colorblind anyway orange looks the same.

>>
>>4047751
wolves are taller so it would have to be male wolf on female fox. think she could even fit him?
>>
>>4047866
It depends on how elastic the vixen's vagina is. And how much space in her womb she has to prevent the Wolf from hurting internal organs.
