Foxes!
« on: February 27, 2014, 05:28:59 PM »

I've always wondered this. Foxes are much to big to be in redwall, right? I mean, they could make a fair match to a badger lord! And they can't be baby foxes, because Ferahgo was old. So why are they in redwall? They're not uncommon, either. Was there some kind of nomadic midget fox tribe from over the seas of... Somewhere????   ???

Animal size seems as if it's been rebalanced. A mouse can whack a fox or a ferret upside the head. A shrew can easily kill a stoat.

Right. He decreases the size of some animals and increases the size of others to make them fit in with the series.

But what about the one scene where Timbalisto sits on The Taggerung's shoulders at redwall to see sumthin?

Maybe Timbalisto was short for a beast and Taggerung was pretty tall.

I never imagined Redwall animals to be exactly their own size. I imagined creatures like mice and squirrels to be slightly smaller and wildcats, badgers and foxes to be slightly larger. Otherwise, Martin would have no chance against Tsarmina.

Yeah. . .
In my story stuffs all sizes have been modified, but any creature that should be bigger is bigger, including but not limited to foxes.

Shrinking and expanding sizes...
...is that similar to slowing and speeding up time?  ;D

Actually, there are a lot of foxes where I live, and they're way smaller than everyone (including me) thinks. Even so, they must have been re-sized, because a mouse (or a mole or a shrew or a squirrel) is still no match for a fox in the real world.
