Red foxes are normally solid red (in shades from crimson to gold) with black legs and ears and a white underside. Approximately 30% of wild individuals have additional black patterning, which usually manifests as a stripe across the shoulders and down the center of the back. This pattern forms a "cross" over the shoulders, hence the term "cross fox".
