Types of fox

I have a customer that wants me to buy and mount the different types of fox for her. I know there are different color phases but are there any beside the Red, Grey, Arctic and Kit. Is the Swift the same as a Kit?

is a color phase of a red. Around here there called cross foxes. The ones ive seen are black with silver tips on the guard hairs. Very desirable hide because of the rarity, at least here.

some scientists say that they are the same species, some say different but they look different and are built a little different, kits are built more for the desert and have bigger ears to diffuse heat, swifts are a little thicker in body and have smaller ears, they come from the plains while the kits are from the deserts hope this helps
