If you've never seen a black fox before, you're not alone; these are actually red fox color morphs, making them more rare than their red-furred counterparts. Despite this, many still refer to these foxes as if they were a separate group altogether, calling them silver foxes.

Fox imagery is found across cultures, where they usually assume the role of a trickster. In everyday language, too, the common word “vixen,” meaning a female fox, is used when referring to a spiteful or quarrelsome woman.
