There's a fox in my Bed by Brillyent-Blondie There's a fox in my Bed by Brillyent-Blondie
Gah, I just love him! :love:

Kai is my soft mount taxidermy Canadian Cross Fox done by MidnightWolfDesigns on Etsy :heart:

**NOTE: If you don't like taxidermy, that's fine- but please keep your comments to yourself if that's the case. Thanks!**

This fox really is beautiful.  x3

Aren't you ever afraid your dogs might tear him up, though?  I mean, I know he's dead, but they can still sense the wild animal smell on him, can't they?  (I don't really know that much about dogs, but that would be my fear if I had something like this.)

Thank you!  :)

And no, not at all actually!  My dog are very well behaved and respectful of my taxidermy items; I've had them since they were puppies and they were raised around taxidermy/fur items and have never had any interest in chewing on them.  They pretty much just leave them alone!  Occasionally I can get them to sit next to them for pictures, though :nod:

Gorgeous! I have just a pelt from a normal red fox. Still pretty, but couldn't compare to your gorgeous fellow! 'Grats! I personally don't think I could handle taxidermy foxes though. I don't like em looking at me. :O But I'd be willing to use a pelt to make a stuffed animal. Similar, but still is blatantly not real. *Shrug* Personal preference. My stepdad has a taxidermy cougar. It's gorgeous and I love to pet it, but again... Don't think I could have my own in my home.

Normal red foxes are beautiful too! For me, they are nearly tied with cross foxes in the spot for "favorite fox color" :heart: And yeah- I can see that; Taxidermy is an acquired liking it seems! I've always loved fur, feathers, and all things found in the natural world~ I like being surrounded by them and enjoy the beauty they bring to my home that reminds me of how amazingly beautiful animals are out in nature.

That said, I have a few friends who get freaked out by the mounts and I have to move them to the other room when they come to visit!! They are TOO real looking for some people's comfort, lol! And a taxidermy cougar sounds pretty cool- I don't think I've ever seen one in person (live or mounted). They are lovely creatures though, no doubt :nod:

Thank you! What a special fox he must have been to be mounted by your grandfather, and so kind of you to give such a gift to your friend :heart:

Yes, my grandfather found this fox dead (it was hit by a car) :( This fox had really beautiful fur so he took it home :) He lay on my grandparents bed and when I seen it I really wanted it for me so my grandparents give it to me :) After few years my friend loved to come to me to see it so I give it to her :)

I just wonder if people ever put some kind of shape or joints in the legs so they don't look so derpy...

I wouldn't say his legs look "derpy," though I probably should have adjusted the position of the back legs for the photo!

Many taxidermists offer full body wiring (ie: wire spine and legs for poseability), but I prefer the ones without since they are more floppy and cuddly. A couple of artists (AtFirstPlush and FlashbackPractice) offer wiring in the legs only, that way the body stays nice and plush but the legs have more form to them. Endless-Masquerade has made a few that have custom ball-socket joint skeletons throughout, she's the only one I know of that has done it that way so far.
