If you have image files of your plotting symbols (fox and rabbits) then one
approach is to follow the example in the post at: http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/~rking/R/help/05/08/10890.html

hope this helps,

George's query somewhat leads on to a more general question: Can one define one's own symbols for plotting?

For example -- though I'm not seriously saying I need this -- in a population study of faxes and rabbits surveyed over several years, one might wish to plot the Rabbit population using tiny rabbits as points, and foxes' heads for the Fox population.

(Given the data coordinates, I would have my own ways to do this; but not in R).

Best wishes,
Ted.
