So, since obviously walking on your toes adds a couple of inches to your height, the poll question is... How tall are you... when you stand on your toes in a digitigrade fashion, like most furs?

This poll refers to your mundane selves, although you can apply this to your fursonas if you wish. A series of ranges have been provided, but feel free to post the actual figure here.

For me, 6'4" - I'm 6'2" plantigrade.

(Gives me a few inches over my characters ':cool:')

I don't know my hight but I only gain about 3/4 inch because I tend to bend my knees.

Pretty much the same, because I bend my knees to keep a comfortable balance, although I do prop myself over the 6'0" mark (because I'm 182cm and 6' is 183cm).

Although, I can walk around on the tips of my toes, then I'm 6'3" '<img'>

Wow I'm the shortest one to reply so far. I'm 5'7" normally, probably no more than 5'9" on my toes. ':cry:'

I'm 5'11" plantigrade, never measured digitigrade, but it'd probably take me up to at least 6 foot.

waah!!!  I... feel... SHORT!!!   ':cry:'   '<img'>

I'm only 5'5" normally.  In digitigrade stance (which I'm in a lot), I'm the pretty well the same cuz I bend my knees, I lean forward slightly, and I have only mid sized feet.  I know foxes are really small compared to other animals, but darnit this stinks.  damn being short!!!  well, at least my bulky built like a rock appearace makes up for it.  '<img'>

Wow!  ':shock:' Furs are not only getting younger...
they are getting TALLER!

This ponyfox is 5'3" when flatfooted... which is almost never.
I am around 5'5" on tiptoe... which I tend to walk on.  (My toes that is.)

Edited due to premature ejacpostation.
Had not listed my height.

We need to start a 'petite paws' group for all us under 5'5" furs!
And after all, aren't the shorter furs the cutest... foxes, rabbits, cats, dogs, ponies (ie minis) etc.

So probably... Digitigrade - 5'11.5

I'll edit this when I can FIND MAH BLOODY MEASURER-THING.

I'd say I'm almost 6' in digitgrade since I'm 5' 10" plantigrade.

Although I'm not actually short, my younger brother is taller than I am so I feel your pain, petite furs  '<img'>
