I made up his name combining "Shadow" and "Shade"...... SHADEOW!!..don't judge.
I went to go pick up this guy from the post office!!! Ugh he's amazing.. WHY DID THE HUNTER CHOP HIM UP.. Seriously it's very very rare to come across a pure black fox. BLACK FOXES ARE SUPER RARE. I'm talking about ones that have nooo silver tipping period. Just straight jet black. He's almost the size of my ranch foxes.
He doesn't have a bit of silver tipping in him that most silver foxes have. Not a single one. The only white he has on him are the typical markings like the white tipped tail, a chest spot and his "landing lights" XDD (dunno why their boy parts always have diff colors but on a dark animal you can always tell where the boyhood is haha)
Unfortunately he's not mountable..not even close to a second chance. He has no eyelid nor lip skin period so unless a taxidermist out there is a miracle worker he's gonna stay a danglebuddy. Which is okay because most of my collection is wallhangers XD. Luckily they didn't strip his ears so they are intact and he has good length of legskins. I'll rehydrate his face later.
Seriously guy you coulda sold this pelt for top $$$ to a taxidermist had you not chopped such a rare animal to pieces!! Just like those white coyotes on H&F too haha.
He's a keeper though XD. Sorry the the crappy photo, seriously this room isn't camera friendly, just makes everything look like crap.
I've tried midnight before for Blimp but I never got a response XD. He's got too many issues. In the end he'd probably look strange if he was managed to put together, even one of his eyes were enlarged XD. I've rehydrated his face now. Now he looks wicked with his ears back to shape XD.
