If you don't have the animal's actual eyeball to measure,  what's the best way to determine the right sized eye to buy?  I'm going to be working on coyotes and arctic and silver foxes.  I also have a couple of interspecies fox hybrids (Alopex x Vulpes) that weighed 45 lb and stood as tall as a Border collie.

When you order the form look in the catalog and use the recommended size it will be close if not right on.

I agree with 3bears.  The form should give a size in mms for the correct eye.  Sometimes you may have to trim a little foam around the sockets.  I don't think I've ever measured an actual eyeball.
