California Gray Fox Spook to be auctioned off today. 100% floppy, articulated jaw. The ears were a little bit of a challenge to color match properly. No LED's. I will be starting this fox at $200. If this fella goes above $400 I will make it partially poseable (insert wires into the front legs). Goes over $600? LED's and full poseability will be made possible.

Summer coat on this fox is extremely lush, thick, smooth, and just incredible to feel alone. The boldest colors I have seen yet on a Gray. Those fiery reds and oranges on the side of the neck is only accented more by that real jet black dorsal stripe. I snagged a closeup of the lower neck/shoulders as well as the tail but no pictures will ever do this fox justice.
Trapped out of the hills of California (both this pelt and Sprite) are dwarfed by Kytt, my Wyoming Gray. Climate truly affects the coloration, texture, and size of a creature.
The skull at the bottom is from a Gray fox, and a right petite one at that. Pristine and pure white, and is only missing 3 teeth (one upper, just left of the canine, other two are forwards of the jaw on the lower (viewer) right side.)
I will not be making this one poseable I don't believe as I don't have anything of a small enough gauge for those thin legs. No LED's are planned either, juggling around the price of $250-300 when finished unless I get enough interest in having it poseable. I will not do LED's though, my battery packs are far too large for this fox!
This fox was neither killed by me and has no holes suggesting no gun was used, but a painless euthanasia in its place.
Yes this is 100% real, considering it was trapped that would be a yes it was trapped for its fur. Yes its dead, no you will not get attention by sobbing or calling names, flaming, or throwing a tantrum. Death is apart of life, people honor death differently than you might, get over it. Anyone of the sort will get their comment hidden. If you don't like it, then leave. You should know by now what I post. Harsh? Deal with it, I'm tired of baww'ers that don't know that taxidermy IS a form of art or cannot handle themselves maturely.
