I recently purchased 2 gallons of fox urine from 2 reputable suppliers. 1 Gal. was a rich gold/yellow color. The other, a dark brown color with visible particles floating in it. Now, I know both are good, my question is this: Why the difference in color and IS ONE BETTER THAN THE OTHER?
Anyone have any thoughts on this?

the color difference is caused by diet,the light urine is from a dog food diet,the dark from meat fed. personally i like the dark

why then is fox urine found on a blanket of snow more the golden color vs. the dark brown? I know wild fox is not eating dog food. lol.

Mink,
yes, the darker one does have a skunky smell. Why is that? An added "boost" so the urine has more power?

like i said ,its the diet& its pure urine .not watered down or preserved. fresh from the fox, you are correct tho in statment both will work,i just prefer the dark. heres a tip : put your urine in a freezer until it almost freezes,pour off the good top, leave the water ,the water freezes before the good stuff. you now have a condensed urine. little bit thick,sticks very well to a post

The reason a fox's urine is so light on snow is because the heat of it when it hits it melts the snow, thus diluting the urine. It's probably darker when it comes out.

i am 31(lol) anyways urine is urine it should be yellow or at least yellow-ish in color, if it is very dark (blackish) in color it is old. and the stuff floating in it is left over from the poor filtering process it went through
