Macbeth is someone who is ambitious, brave, prideful, and cunning person similar to his spirit animal, the fox. Foxes are seen as generous yet very clever and deceiving, these animals are often mistaken to be harmless to their own kind; that is not really true because they're are blinded by competitiveness and ambition so much like Macbeth. Macbeth does reveal that trait in Act 1, Scene 3 aside to himself speaking, "My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical, Shakes so my single state of man That function is smother'd in surmise, and nothing is but what is not." it is here he wonders about murdering the king to take his position. The fox can be seen as a prideful and sly or manipulative to achieve their needs. Macbeth manipulates everyone and makes them believe these lies and even sends murderers to do his dirty work such the killings of Banquo and MacDuff's family. In many cases foxes have been regarded as these clever, cunning, and ambitious canines. Macbeth has shown all of these attributes so far throughout the story and will represents the fox being a man to do whatever it takes to get what he wants no matter the cost.
