Suran's Fox-Database

NOTE: Even latin names change and some species were given multiple names, so for not making you having to search the whole db to find a species by the "old" name, I inserted all latin names I got known of and linked them with the right pages.
If there are numbers in brackets there are differing information on that fact and the numbers represent the highest and the lowest number I found in other publications.
Are you looking for a RL-text (book) about foxes? Have a look at my fox-biliography and I'm shure you'll find something.

Please visit the new: Species Map
