What Does the Fox Say?
The Switchables Fox stained glass night light cover doesn't say anything. It just hangs there looking foxy.
The fused-glass process enables Switchables to create a new generation of nightlight covers like none you've ever seen before. Instead of being folded and soldered like traditional Switchables covers, these pieces of glass are fused together with flash heat for more brilliant colors and intricate designs with no metal borders. Bits and strips of glass are bonded to a slightly curved, clear or colored background panel.
You can identify a fused-glass Switchables cover by its "SF" item number. Traditional Switchables start with "SW".
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sorry, we are permanently sold out -- clicking that link will take you away from our store). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup.
Are you curious...?
The red fox is the most widely known of the 12 species of true foxes (which are canids, like dogs). There are 25 other extant or extinct fox species with coats ranging from pearly white to black-and-white, like our nightlight cover. A fox's coat color and thickness change with the seasons and even as individuals age. They don't age much, though. Foxes usually only live one to three years in the wild, although they can attain the hoary old age of 10 under ideal conditions.
Increasingly since the 20th century, those ideal conditions have been near humans. Red foxes in particular will cheerfully make dens in houses and gardens and forage for discarded food. Urban foxes live longer and have smaller litters than their wilder cousins, and have denser populations. Will we ever keep foxes as pets? The Russians spent 50 years domesticating a group of silver foxes. Like dogs, these domesticated foxes developed curly tails and floppy ears, as well as the habit of whining for attention and a fondness for being petted. Outside of this experimental group and a few other individuals, though, foxes prefer to keep to themselves.
