Grey Fox Stalking Reference

Submitted by Mickey on 11/26/99. ( mapamundy@aol.com ) 152.163.188.33

I'm about to do a Grey Fox using a WASCO stalking form.
I don't have a reference for this pose. How do foxes's ears,
eyes and tail look when they're stalking?

Grey foxes are basically dogs. I'd get a reference book on foxes from a supplier, or a library.

Stalking Gray Fox

It depends ... if the fox is approaching and wanting to remain as "small" as possible, then his ears and tail will be down, and lowered. If the fox is stalking, and it needs to "home-in" on it's prey, it will lift those ears to detect the faintest sound. The tail is never generally lifted higher than the level of its' back when stalking. When they are at play with each other, the tail will be all over the place! Hope this helps. good luck to you ... John B.


Thankyou

Thanks for the info. Since I lost hair in the ears when I
removed the cartlidge I'm going to go with the fox wanting
to be "small". Now I just need that special picture. Thanks again.
