Fox Skull Identification

Discussion in 'Skulls and Skeletons' started by Arcanum Oddities, Aug 14, 2019.

  1. Hey, so I bought a grey fox skull off of eBay but That’s not what it is. I know it is a fox but I just can’t pin what it is. I asked in another community that I’m active on and had a few people say it looks like a red and looks like ones that they have but I’m not entirely convinced. It does look like a red but with a bit of a stubbier muzzle, which I’ve seen before. Could it be ranched?

    I took some pictures so I could get input from here. The big skull beside it is my male coyote.

    Not a grey but could be a red. More than likely a ranched hybrid. I have several that are red x arctic and all of them are a bit different.
