Vulpes vulpes, the red fox, has been domesticated for hundreds of years. Through the continued breeding of the red fox in captivity, there has been an explosion of variations in color, size, and temperament. With the rise of interest in domesticated foxes as pets and educational animals, there is a dire need for education of the public on these animals and their history. Fur farming also remains a lucrative industry, an industry engaged in continuous and broad academic research. Aimed at these audiences, this academic presentation allows users to view a 30 animated fox, and select its coloration, animation, view, and review the color's genetic breakdown and history.
