The many antics of vulpes vulpes, being such cute little derps, to think that I get to interact with them and share them with so many people, it warms my heart to no end! :D
Sweet little red fox belonging to a friend of mine, so hyper, so cute, SO FLUFFY!!!
The many adorable expressions foxes are so wont to make, nothing turns us humans into a puddle from sheer cute than vulpes vulpes lol <3 Sweet little foxy she is!!
Q:What do you do that gives you the opportunity to work with these lovely creatures???
I’ve become friends with many wonderful fox owners who graciously give me the opportunity to interact with them, something I’ll forever be grateful for, and for the continuance in being able to do so. Not to mention I also volunteer at a sanctuary where I get to interact with a rescued vixen who, like the other foxes I know, is a very sweet little foxy <3 It’s truly a remarkable experience for sure <3
The many faces a happy fox makes in greeting to those they love and trust <3
Trust between a human and an animal cannot simply be given, it has to be earned, it has to be maintained, and it is something that should not be compromised. That trust is one of the greatest rewards.
Being greeted affectionately by a fox, in this case, Skitter <3 <3 <3 Undoubtedly one of the most sweet, affectionate foxes I know personally :) Happy happy fox!
I should note that I rarely show pics of me due to being somewhat self-conscious, but I figured, since I was holding a sweet cuddly baby fox, I was like, why not? Go big or go home! :D Man, she is just one sweet baby fox!! <3 <3 <3 How many people can honestly say they have had such an awesome opportunity? One of the best experiences I’ve ever had!
Q:can you feed (dead) mice to foxes?
I personally wouldn’t see any harm if they are first frozen and then partially defrosted much in the same way you would feed a snake, but a fox will eat rodents in the wild with ease as they are opportunistic carnivores :) When kept as pets, they need a lot of an amino acid called taurine, which is paramount for overall cardiac health, their coats, and has a calming effect on them, much like trytophan has a calming effect on humans. They need a high-quality diet of taurine, among other vital nutrients when kept in captivity. If they don’t get this amino acid in their diet, they will experience major detrimental effects on their health, so it’s best to keep a fox happy, cared for and quirky :P Raw chicken is a good source of this nutrient, boiling it is bad as the chicken bones become brittle and splinter. Overall, common sense, I hope I explained it relatively well lol ;)
