A fox is a small canid with a distinctive sharp face and bushy tail. True foxes (genus Vulpes) come in multiple species including the red fox (Vulpes vulpes, the most widespread and varied), the white- or grey-furred arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus), the large-eared fennec fox (Vulpes zerda), and several others. Males are known as tods or dogs, and females are known as vixens.
Two of today's most popular commercial characters among the Furry fandom, Renamon from Digimon and Nick Wilde from Disney's Zootopia, are foxes. They are also common villains in many animal-based media such as the Redwall franchise.
