Foxes. More Foxes. Less Foxy Coffee and more fluffy, furry, curious companions.

Fennec fox is a must have. Honestly one of the most adorable animals at the local zoo.

Hopefully we can get them in with a Sahara themed DLC with some of the other missing animals: addax, scimitar-horned oryx, dromedary camel, etc.

Might get arctic foxes with the polar DLC that's almost certain to happen at some point (polar bear, penguin, reindeer, muskox, etc).

I'd love to see a species of fox as well. The two species I would love to see most are the corsac (a really active and attractive species from the Asian steppes - it also has a seasonal coat change like the arctic fox, going from a thin sandy-brown coat in summer to a much thicker off-white coat in winter) and the grey (has a wide temperature and habitat tolerance and is the most arboreal of the foxes - would love to be able to have climbing frames for the species).

And although it isn't technically a fox (they look similar but are more closely related to wolves), I would also love to see the culpeo or Andean fox. It is intermediate in size between a red fox and a coyote, would add a South American mountain species to the game and was even domesticated by people (although the domestic culpeo or Fuegian dog is now extinct). There is a picture of a wild culpeo in the link below, for those unfamiliar with what they look like.

So yes, two true foxes and one not-quite fox that I would really like. But any species would be much appreciated by myself.
what size would foxes have in game? nearly the same as pangolins? this is very small.
"Normal" Foxes - like the red Fox, can have a shoulder height of 40 cm while being 1.30 in length, so a little less than a wolf. Some foxes get up to 60 cm, (maybe even bigger, I don't know the averages of all fox subspecies), while reaching up to 1.60 in length. I guess this is an exception, but I don't think that foxes would be too small for the game. The smallest fox would be the Fennec, with 30 to 40 cm in length, making it the size of a pangolin.
This is Daphne. She's a Marble Fox. She waits patiently to be added to the game.

But you know... No pressure. :)
That's a domesticated colour morph, not a wild animal. That sort of thing has no place in a game like Planet Zoo.

Personally I wouldn't be surprised if we yet see the Arctic fox. I get the feeling Frontier is probably going to look at the Arctic wolf backlash and get to work rectifying it in some manner. I have nothing against the Arctic wolf itself, or against copy-paste animals, but it did feel like a major copout given how badly the community wanted the fox.
