As far as I know, this question was first asked in issue #5 by Graham
Smith, Turkey Creek, KY. The answer was that Sally is a _squirrel_, not a
fox. This was asked again in #14, #16 and #17, always with the same
result. In issue #19 there even was a question if Sally is a tree squirrel
or a ground squirrel.

This was mentioned in issue #2 (regular series) in the story 'All the
mail's about Tails!'. They took the funniest opinions of their readers
about Tails two tails and put them into a two-page story. This particular
idea came from Tom Kilroe, Tega Kay, SC.

Of course, I wouldn't rely too much on what the editors of the comic book
tell you. To my opinion they tend to guess if they don't know the correct
answer or they just try to avoid it. In issue #7 someone asked Sonic "Why
are you so good-looking and smart and how old are you?". The answer was
"The only way to remain _good looking_ is to be _smart_ and never reveal
your _age_.".

However, in issue #16 someone said he had a chapter book that says Sonic
is fifteen years old, and the editors immediately fell for it and approved
it. Well, the only 15-year-old I know of is Knuckles (mentioned in the
manual for 'Sonic III'.

Only my opinion... don't flame me
