I'm all for education in cartoon format but Slylock Fox always confuses me. As the Comics Curmudgeon points out, if the rules are suspended for half the characters - the fox is a detective, the mouse wears pants and the pig grows tomatoes, why should we assume that in this universe the snake is a carnivore and the raccoon is an omnivore? I hope that the solution to this conundrum would be obvious to any biologist - if the cartoonist has shown their teeth then we could have been confident in the identity of the omnivore.
