I found a animal under my deck, it had the same colors as a fox but the tail isn't poofy and and its fur was extremely short, what is it?
We would need more details than that but I think it is a ferret or something...
Could be a fox, there's different types
Still possible that it's just a fox, they do vary a bit sometimes, even among the same types. Could be that it's older, or has something wrong with it as well, that is affecting it's coat/tail.
Awwww!:) it's probably a fox. During the summer they can have short hair cuz they shed and change to the environment. Is it alive still?
