Abstract

The article is devoted to the study of the correlation between the exterior and behavioral features of male silver-black fox’s cage breeding and reproduction of their performance. In the wild during copulation most vertebrates exhibit protective and sexual reflexes related to the labeling of its territory. With the domestication of some animals did not lose these symptoms. For example, the family dog fur animals with unique exterior and behavioral characteristics associated with labeling space around pheromones own urine.
