Fox Crossing By Robert Bateman

By Robert Bateman

Fox Crossing by Robert Bateman

"This is a portrait of a particular fox. Although all foxes are perky and elegant, this one was especially so, leading me to believe that it must be a female. She was unusually tame, adopting a certain household in the forest of northern British Columbia, which she visited for cat food. She was also especially pretty with her multicolored coat. Although she was a red fox, this color form is known as a cross fox. There is a dispute about whether the name comes from the idea that this form is a cross between a red fox and a black or silver fox, or whether it is because the dark area down the back and across the shoulders forms the sign of a cross. The former theory cannot really apply because there is no evidence that mates of a different color are needed to produce a cross fox. In fact, although red is by far the most common form, a cross or black fox can pop up at any time in a litter of red foxes.

I featured the luxuriant tail, a very important asset to all foxes. This one is graced with a superb and abundant appendage. The tail, when wrapped around a sleeping fox's face and paws, becomes a muff and comforter with great insulation properties, but is easy to breathe through." ~ Robert Bateman
