Yes, red foxes, at least in the north, a summer coat, (new short redish hair) becomes darker as the fur length grows and becomes hollow (for better insulation against the cold). Arctic foxes change from white, beige or light gray in the winter to brown, tan or black in the summer. This helps camoflauge them to protect them from predators and help them sneak up on their pray. Their winter coat also protects them from the cold so they can survive temperatures of -100.
