To be as cunning as a fox means to be very clever at getting what you want, especially by tricking someone.
Foxes have a reputation for being cunning.
Examples of use:
1. The police haven’t caught the burglar yet. He’s as cunning as a fox.
2. You can’t fool Jack. He’s as cunning as a fox.
3. Don’t trust her with your savings. She’s as cunning as a fox and will trick you into giving away your money.
