The end of their tail has longer fur that the rest of their body.

Sexual Dimorphism: Males grow thick manes that continue slightly down their back, as well as heavier belly fur and elbow fur.

Spots are common, and are either a darker shade of their body color, or black. Stripes are uncommon, but sometimes seen. A sphinx’s hair and mane will usually be a shade or two darker than their primary body color. Their eyes are gold, brown.

Southern sphinxes can breed with northern winged sphinxes, although these half-breeds are usually sterile.
