I find it most interesting that all three mythologies share a common thread--fox spirits who transform into lovely women to trick human males.
It gives the term "foxy lady" a whole new spin, don't you agree?
I encourage you to visit the Fox Index, a wonderful website devoted to the Asian Fox Spirit myths. Lots of fantastic links and information for anyone wanting to learn more.
I hope you'll stop by Myth Perceptions next month as I track down another shapeshifter myth - the Celtic kelpies. Should be a wild ride.
