Their final coat

Postby Aeroz » Mon Jul 13, 2015 11:51 pm

I was just wondering, at what age will my red fox's coat have fully changed to his adult colors?

Good question. In my experience, it varies between individuals. For example, my Ifrit had all her colors come in really early. When she was five weeks old, she was already a definite red color. Her sister was still brown.

Here's some pictures showing her color change. :)

Ifrit at 3 weeks (with litter mates):

Ifrit at 5 weeks (with sister)

Her sister looks a LOT like a baby cross fox. But she got her colors in, and now, fully-grown, she's just as red and vibrant as Ifrit is:

Ifrit at 7 weeks (blurry, but shows color well):

Ifrit at 10 weeks (tormenting Fable):

Ifrit at 12 weeks:

Ifrit at 5 months (with Fable):

Fable was sold to me as a red, but he wound up being a cross--and since he was my first, it took me a while to figure that out. :P I kept waiting for his colors to come in, but they didn't, ha. So I don't know what age he was when he came into his final coat.

I'd like to know other peoples' experiences as well.
I'm Fable and Ifrit's mommy. Also mommy to Carousel, Breeze, and a bunch of snakes, lizards, and spiders. Oh, and one amphibian!
