Yep, that winter coat time of the year again!! and the fox go FLOOF, all fluffed up and poofy! This is his 6th edition winter coat (being 5 1/2 years old)!
Ron is a pet red fox I bought from a licensed exotic animal breeder, in Oklahoma, captive-bred and hand-raised. My state of Arkansas allows pet foxes without any permit needed.
He enjoys a large outdoor habitat and also a small indoor caged spot in my living room. Foxes are said to make ‘bad’ pets, but I would rather say foxes make wonderful pets!… just rather destructive, moody pets, NOT FOR CHILDREN.
Every potential fox owner/companion MUST have an outdoor pen built fox-proof; here’s some examples— http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2812518/ http://raptor-painter.deviantart.com/art/Building-a-better-fox-kennel-5-203764564
