In this case, foxes, which have one tail, often can not hide it. Therefore, a person can recognize a demon if he loses control over himself, for example, in a state of intoxication.
Kitsune can also be guardian protectorsshower. This is a very rare case, since a fox, as a rule, does not stay with a person for a long time.
