Colin J. Carlson is a biologist, but he's not an expert on foxes. Still, he decided to make a list of foxes and rate them with letter grades for their "weirdness" in a Twitter thread. As you go through it, you'll see that the grades are quite arbitrary, but the description of each fox is delightful, and so are the pictures. Shown above is a Blandford's fox, which has a tail that doesn't quit. Carlson posted about all the foxes he could think of, and then people started suggesting others. He was kind enough to continue the project to include them.
