***Vulpines v. Humans (Part 1)***
Special Abilities

As you are probably are aware, Vulpines have certain special abilities that Humans simply either do not have...or are seriously behind.  Here is a list of some of them
 
Speed
 
A typical human can probably run at a maximum speed of 10-15 MPH, an olympic sprinter can probably run about 2x this range (20-30 MPH).  But compared to many Vulpine species, this is kinda slow.
 
> Most canine species on Vulpes have an average running speed of 25-30 MPH with maximum speeds of up to 50 MPH*
> Cheetah fems have an average speed of around 50 MPH, with a maximum speed of around 75 MPH...HOWEVER, as in real life, Vulpine cheetahs are "sprinters" and can only maintain this speed for a short period of time.
> Hooved species, particularly deer and horses are fast runners with a high amount of stamina.  These species can usually run 40-50 MPH for long distances without getting tired.
> Although there are many species that can run faster than humans, most Rodent species, Pandas, and a couple of other species have around the same speed range as humans do.
 
Underwater
 
Most humans can only hold their breath for a few minutes at most before needing to come up for fresh air.  In addition, most humans are not very fast in the water, only capable of going just a few miles per hour while swimming.  Olympic swimmers can swim a bit faster, but are relatively slow compared to some of these underwater/amphibious species.
 
> Dolphins and Orcas can both hold their breath for up to an hour before coming up to breathe again and are capable of swimming at up to 30 MPH for Orcas, 40 MPH for Dolphins.
> Seals can also hold their breath underwater for about an hour, and although aren't as fast as other aquatic species, they can still swim as fast as 20 MPH.
> Sea Vixens can hold their breath for about a half-hour and can swim at up to 30 MPH.
> All of these species are amphibious and are capable of living on land or at sea, though Dolphins, Seals, and Orcas are fastest in the water; Sea vixens can run as fast as a normal vixen can (about 30-40 MPH).
> All of these species also have a special "air pouch" inside their bodies where they can store oxygen for emergency use or to use during yiff underwater with a non-aquatic species (although it is difficult for Dolphins and Orcas to share their oxygen with another species due to their long "beaks").
 
Sound, Sight, and Smell
 
Most humans can see a wide variety of colors and hear a wide variety of sounds, but as far as the sense of smell is concerned, the human sense of smell is relatively weak.  But this is one category that certain Vulpine species owe a big "Thank You" to humans since their lives would be different without human intervention and human DNA.
 
> real-life canine species are color-blind, only capable of seeing the world in grayscale (though this usually means that they are very good at seeing highlights and shadows).  Canine species on Vulpes have enough human DNA inside them to give them the ability to see in full color and to keep their excellent highlight/shadow vision.
 
With that being said however, there are also things that Vulpines can see well, that humans cannot see well.
 
> Canine and Feline species see very well in the dark, even with little ambient light.
> Aquatic Species have invisible "eyelids" that they can use to see clearly underwater, like natural goggles.
 
Now on to sound...While most humans can hear a wide variety of things, their sound perception is lacking to some species.
 
> Canine species have very strong sound perception and can hear things that many humans cannot (I.E.: a canine could conceivably hear a pin dropping on a tile floor from up to a half-mile away).
> Mice, Rabbits, Kangaroos, and Deer all also have strong sound perception
 
As far as smell is concerned, the sense of smell for humans is pathetic, especially compared to Canine species.
 
> Canines have a very strong sense of smell (largely because their nuzzles hold far more smell receptors than humans do).  Large canine species (I.E.: Wolves) can smell an aroma that would be barely noticable by humans at a close distance (I.E.: a vanilla scented candle) from hundreds or even thousands of yards away.
 
Miscellaneous
 
The following is a list of things that Vulpine species (or certain species) have that humans do not have that I didn't mention before.
 
> Almost all Vulpine species have scent glands in their bodies that produces a scent that is pleasing to almost any species (including humans).
> Foxes and felines have retractable claws on their fingers that act as tiny switchblades.
> A handful of ultra-rare species (I.E.: ALPHA Golden Foxes, Fire Vixens, Blue Vixens, Fire Mousettes) have god-like special abilities such as control of fire and/or electric blasts.
