Has anyone seen the cross foxes. They look amazing! They have both silver and red fur.

Fun fact! Although Vulpes vulpes is commonly know as the red fox, there are actually several different color morphs of the species. The silver fox has higher levels of melanin than its more common red cousin, providing its distinctive black and silver coat. Silver fox kits are born completely black, and their silver highlights start to appear at around 2 months old. https://upload.facebook.com/projectnoah/...

I believe this qualifies for the rare color morph mission, http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7970... and would be glad if you added it, if not already in it! I found this link for you regarding red foxes and their morphs,http://livingwithfoxes.weebly.com/colour-morphs.html.
