I encourage those of you who have just recently started looking into ownership to really make sure you're ready. They can be great pets if you are ready. If you kid yourself, and you really aren't, you're only going to be disappointed... and it's not fun for you, or fair for the fox... I'd hate for someone to get a fox only to realize they weren't ready for it and then be spending the whole first part of their fox's life stressing and worrying--as well as their animal stressing... That's a time that should be enjoyed and cherished.
Exactly why i'm glad i got interested now instead of later.
I have many years to do my research, and find opportunities to work with foxes and learn more about them before ever getting one.
Or, since i plan to get a Bachelor's in Biological Sciences and Minor in Russian Language, then returning to school for a Master's in Zoology, maybe i could go work at "The Institute of Cytology and Genetics at Novosibirsk" and actually help domesticate foxes
