Q:One more question... I've tried to figure out wheter owning a fox is illegal or not in Austria, but I never found any proper information. Just if you can keep foxes xou reared, etc. Did you mention anything about it in your blog yet? I'm sorry if you did.
Foxes are legal in Austria, I didn’t mention it anywhere already. It took a while for me to answer as I had to contact the Department of Agriculture of Austria and await for an answer regarding private fox ownership.
You can have fennec foxes and other non-endangered exotic fox species as well as red foxes, regardless of their color.
Q:Oh, I have another question. I live in an apartment and I would like to own a Fennec Fox. I'm also currently living in Florida. Do you happen to know any breeders FL? Thank you!
Fennec foxes and pale foxes are the only foxes that could be kept in apartments, due to their size. You’d need a Ferret Nation Cage and make sure you do all of your research! They’re not comparable to a small dog.
I know of several breeders but don’t like to give public information. You should get in touch with Fennec Foxes, become a member and look at their Breeders list.
Make sure you know what they require and that your landlord accepts the idea of you owning a fennec fox in his apartments. They cost $2000-$2500 on average.
Q:I just wanted to share a cool fox story with you. The other day I was at a park for my little cousins birthday, I was playing in the playground area (which is right on the border of the nature trail) and I turned my head, and about 60 metres away, standing like 10 metres outside of the fence was a beautiful Red Fox, by my guess it was around 5 or 6, I slowly walked over to the fence to get a closer look, it looked over at me then resumed eating the goose it was working on. Thought I would share
Thanks for sharing, that’s cute! Foxes are curious animals by nature.
I’ve only had three encounters with red foxes in the wild; once I was coming back from an amusement park in Montreal, and saw at the border of the forest a skinny vixen with three kits running around her. The second time, I just saw a wild fox run across the street in front of the car, and third time, a cat-sized tiny vixen started following our car this summer, her two adorable kits after her.
Q:How many pet foxes do you have living with you right now?
I only have Miko the champagne fox living with me 24/7 right now. Our other foxes are at the facility.
Q:Do foxes prefer to play with foxes of the same gender or is it all the same to them?
It’s really all the same. They just love playing with other foxes in general!
Q:I was wondering how you go about getting a license to own a fox?
I don’t need a license where I live. It depends which state/province you reside in. The requirements are not the same everywhere!
Q:This is probably a really weird question, but do foxes ever hump your leg like dogs do? I'm just curious.
Yes, male foxes may hump your legs (and objects in the house) past the age of 2 months old, regardless if they’re neutered or not.
I woke up to Noki humping my leg, one morning…
