Here are the instructions for the Fox.

Inflate a black 260 approx. half way, the excess of this balloon can be used for the nose.

Make a 3 finger fold twist so approx. a 6 finger bubble, followed by a 2 finger pinch twist.

Make another 3 finger fold twist.

Make two more 3 finger fold twists to make the feet of the fox.

Inflate the 260 Coral and leave 5 fingers un-inflated, I then made a fold twist slightly larger than my hand.
Between a 4/5 finger fold twist which would be approx. a 9 finger bubble.
Wrap the knot of the balloon through the fold twist a couple of times to secure tightly.

Make a 2 finger bubble and then a 2 finger pinch twist.

Then a 4 finger twist for the first front leg, wrap this into the four black 3 finger fold twists.

Make another 4 finger bubble for the other front leg and twist this into the 2 finger pinch twist.

You then need a 4 finger bubble for the body and a 2 finger pinch twist.

Then a 4 finger bubble for the first back leg that is twisted into the black fold twists.

Then the last 4 finger bubble twisted into the rear 2 finger pink twist for the second back leg.

The length of tail will vary, on the occasions I have made the fox it varies between a 10/12 finger bubble in length.

Make a 2 finger bubble at the end of the balloon and twist this into the rear 2 finger pinch twist, so giving you a large fold twist.

Adjust the bubbles to look like in the picture.

Inflate a 160 white for the mouth/cheeks/tummy/tail. Leave approx. 5 fingers un-inflated.
Make a 3 finger fold twist.

Then make another 3 finger fold twist followed by a 2 finger pinch twist.

I do not add this to the head of the fox till the end but you may want to add this now as it might be easier.

I then made two 4 finger bubbles and twisted the balloon back into the two 3 finger fold twists.
The nose will get attached here later.
If you have a look at the finished fox you might prefer a slightly longer face section so make these bubbles two 5 finger bubbles.
