    What is the anatomical difference? My neighbor donated me a beautiful young male red fo that had been snatching up his chickens. Based on my measurements, the smallest red fox form the supplier I want to purchase from has is too large. However they have a gray fox in a pose i like that fits each measurement perfectly. What issues would i run into if I tried to use the gray form?

    If numbers are correct, I believe you would be fine , the head is different shorter snout, you could do a change out head , and the legs are a tad shorter , but if it’s for you , most wouldn’t ever know .

    Neck is a bit thicker on a grey. The lower legs on a grey are also a bit heavier. Greys have a shorter snout. Overall, the red is a more slender, coyote-like body while the grey is a bit thicker.
