This is a dark colour variant of vulpes vulpes, the red fox. In Germany this animals are called "Kohlfuchs". They have a darker throat, a darker coat, a darker tail and a darker belly.

I have made a workshop where you can find two more pictures. One is the the situation how I found the animal and one shows him jumping for a mouse. In the last one you can see nicely the dark tail and the dark belly.



Hier eine abweichende Farbvariante vom Rotfuchs (Vulpes vulpes). Man nennt diese Farbvariante "Kohlfuchs". Kohlfüchse haben eine dunkle Kehle, ein dunkleres Fell, einen dunklen Schwanz und einen dunklen Bauch.

Im Workshop findet man zwei weitere Bilder von diesem Kohlfuchs. Das erste ist die Situation wie ich ihn antraf und das zweite zeigt einen Fuchssprung bei der Mausjagd. Im letzteren Bild sieht man gut den dunklen Schwanz und den dunklen Bauch.
