About the smell. There are products out there that take care of the problem. For my skunk I used marshall bi odor. I put the recommended amount in his drinking water and it worked. Its supposed to be safe and it must be tasteless or close to it. I believe its enzymes. It also eliminates body odor.

Okay. You're initial post sounded like you were wanting help deciding on what exotic to get, which happens, and more information would have been needed to make suggestions. Good to see someone doing all the research before hand.

Yes they smell. Some people have their neighbors complain about their outside red foxes, it's that strong. One person here kept having trouble with people at work complaining about the smell on her clothes(I think she had hers inside though).


Oh, it's that bad? Guess I need to meet some fox owners first. You know, judge for myself. I'm really clean and all so idk if I can handle that.

So yeah, that is definitely a con to owning a red fox is their odor--rather, the odor of their urine and feces. Having an outdoor enclosure is essential, and this is one of the many reasons why. I'm glad that you're planning on building one when/if you get your fox. :)

Well...that is a problem. I want to move to Portland in the future (I heard exotics are banned there, haven't done research on that yet). My dream home would be a 3-story glass house on a private woodlot.

Yeah no exotics in Portland they are/were allowed in the county though, I think they were trying to pass an exotic ban recently but I haven't heard more about it. So might be possible to live kinda near Portland and commute.

OH but you can't have foxes at all in Oregon unless you are USDA licensed.

Oh, sucks for me :( You live in Oregon, right? And you're a Tamandua owner?

Yes and I have a fennec but only because I have my USDA. Tamandua's are allowed without license but they are more of an exotic for someone with exotic experience already with how delicate they are. The whole western half of the US sucks for pet foxes.
