There is no doubt in my mind it's a cross fox. We caught several just like that one over the years. Cross between red and silver. Here is a pic of one I caught and had mounted.

But a silver fox is a red fox, same species. White tip on tail-Vulpes vulpes

There're not called cross foxes because they're a cross of anything. It's the pattern on fur. [:@][:@]

They're a color variant. A recessive gene just like the silver or black coloration. A litter could have red, silver and cross phenotypes.

Slice your bread anyway you want. The fox in my pic. is the result of a silver variation of a red fox mated with a red variation of a red fox.[8D]I just had a long conversation with a fur buyer. He told me that people raise fox and breed color patterns to get a unique color that no other fur raiser has. If silver fox are red fox (I don't know this) they have been bred to poduce that coloration. (like a pure bred dog) I saw some real cool "chocolate" colored silver fox hides. Anyway, the pic that Noah put up is a "red" fox with a very dark color pattern.
