What is a Nautilus Fox? A Nautilus Fox, of NF, Is a rain forest dwelling canine species related to a common fox. They are often warmly colored, with big, oblong ears to help cool it down. Their waterproof fur is curly, and their teeth are long and sharp, to help catch fish. They have subtle webbing between their toes, each of which ends in a small, hooked claw for climbing and fishing. Their tails often double as powerful rudders, helping them swim.
They are a social species, often forming camps or villages in the lower canopy of trees near bodies of water. They build tools and clothing out of what materials are on hand, and large villages often have at least one talented artisan in their midst. Their nest are placed in trees, and are made of feathers, branches, and foliage, often decorated with found items.
A Fox chooses a mate that they stay with for life. A fox can give birth to around 2-4 kits at a time. The parent, or parents, will bring up minnows and small amphibians until the kits, now pups, are ready to leave the nest. The pups are taught several things by members of the village, and continue their lessons until adulthood.
