And finally....

Humor:
The Michael Landon Monkey(Long story short, I used to be obssessed with Michael Landon as the angel Johnathan Smith in the TV show Highway to Heaven;so, when I went to New York, I saw this little stuffed monkey in a tourists shop and it immediately reminded me of Michael Landon as Johnathan Smith so I just had to buy it. Anyway,this comparison picture shows they both have the similiar color hair/fur and eyes, with similar looking "hair styles", and a similiar expression on their faces,which proves my point and is also hilarious in my opinion.)

Oh WOW, that white fox with darker feet is gorgeous. I believe it's called snow glow, am I right? Do you happen to have more pictures of her?

Otherwise, nice pics, and sorry for your dog that just passed away...

Yes. I was suprised to see such usually colored foxes at the zoo. They were all really pretty. Even the red one had some vaguely noticable un-natural looking coloration such as a reddish pink nose color. Sadly, I don't know all their fur color phases for sure as the zoo didn't say anything about that. Because of their unsual colors, I assume they are either fur farm rescues or confiscated pets since it's illegal to have foxes as pets here in Texas sadly. I think the white one with spots is an arctic marble. The other white one I'm not that sure on. She kind of looks like a snow-glow I guess,but there are other white fox colors as well and I'm not sure if they can have black on them still or not. The red one looks kind of like a smoky red gold cross fox to me. I can't remember if I have more pics or not. That might be the only ones but I'll dig through the old files on my computer and see if I can find anymore.

Thanks. Glad you like them. ^^

And it's ok. It's actually been awhile since she passed away now.

You're lucky to have a zoo with such a big variety of animals in it! Where I live, my local zoo only has a common arctic fox and a common red fox (nothing special about their coloration)... sadly.
I hope the laws regarding exotic pets will change for the best in Texas. Are you allowed to have coyotes, wolf dogs or coy dogs at least?

And I'd like to see more pictures if you find them. ^^

Actually, these zoos are all in different cities in Lousiana and Texas. Not all of the pics are from zoos close to me. I have a hobby of going to zoos where-ever I go on vacation at and taking pictures.

The Houston Zoo near where I live only has the swift foxes. The only other canids are maned wolves and african wild dogs.

I hope the laws regarding exotic pets will change for the best in Texas.

I doubt it. People have been challenging the fox laws for years,but have been unsucessful so far.

Are you allowed to have coyotes, wolf dogs or coy dogs at least?

Wolfdogs are legal,but not pure wolves. Coyotes sadly are illegal here. As for coydogs,the law doesn't specify. It just says that coyotes can't be sold,bought,or imported in the state. I'm not sure on the coydogs though. Even if they were allowed through a loophole of not being specifically mentioned, I can't find any breeders of them unfortunately. There was one breeder called Sundance Coydogs that sold beautiful coyote-siberian husky hybrids but their site is gone and when I googled them, someone claiming to be a friend of them said that they no longer breeded. The only other breeder I know of is some lady who breeds a coyote with her border collie,which makes the coydog not have a very wild appearance. There is also the American Indian Dog breed which some people claim is really a coydog hybrid disguised under a different name,but no one knows for sure and there's no way to tell for sure before buying one.

And I'd like to see more pictures if you find them. ^^

I looked and unfortunately, all my photos are on my old computer. I still have my old computer,but it's back in Texas and I'm currently 6 hours away visiting family in Louisiana. I don't think I had anymore pictures of the foxes though and if I do, they are probably really blurry. I think I only uploaded and shared my decent-ish photos on the interenet so I probably don't have anymore decent quality photos of them.
