Also that pic is of an adult Silver and a semi-adolescent Fennec. It was one of the few videos I found on two actually meeting but you can tell the Fennec isn't full grown yet.
Northern has been telling people this summer that they are no longer breeding.
I'm sure cows aren't "Specifically excluded" on most pet friendly contracts either but if you tried it you'd get kicked out for it. Foxes are also not a normal pet so you should get prior written permission. Written permission can help to protect you from getting kicked out. When I rented before the lease had my pets names and exact number. When one died and I wanted a new one I had it added and had his permission because a new one wasn't in the contract yet.They were just dogs but had I gotten a new dog without it being in the contract he could
have evicted us for violating the contract. What is the harm ,why avoid it, because they might say no? If you know there's a chance they will say no so don't ask, that sounds like sneaking to me.
That fennec is 5 so was 4 when that was taken. That's not a juvenile but a full grown fennec.
I guess I'll add that earlier you said reds don't start getting active till 5 years old. I don't know where you got that but that's middle aged and when they would start slowing down, all years before that would be their more active.
Don't worry I always fully intended of having my animals registered and accounted for wherever I lived. I am obviously getting written permission, to add a clause in my contract. I also browsed and selected two lawyers for cases where I'd be wrongly persecuted or should I run into any obstacles against anyone who isn't aware of Montreal's animal laws.
I wasn't aware that Northern Exotics isn't breeding anymore. I'll still find a way though as living in Canada is a must for upcoming national changes but giving up on a Fennec is non negotiable.
I've seen bigger Fennecs than him at around 5 though so guess he's on the healthy and small side. Even Scout (Dro's) looks slighttttly bigger. Enn&Yui on IG is a prime example of a dwarfish breed. The slightly bigger fennec I speak of is Mayafennecfox or fox_kuzma on IG. I've collected over 1000 of quality images of them, I've been fascinated by them since I was a child as they are from my home country's area (I'm Algerian and they spread out from the Sahara and Mediterranean border outwards Morocco & Algeria). I was prone to pay obsessive attention to them for over a decade while always wanting to one day own one.
Believe me when I say I understand where you're coming from with their size, I'm just saying it varies and I'm not strictly putting all my bets on getting a bigger fennec and smaller red. I'm just pointing every logistic towards the best outcomes, which is the whole point I'm here, to gather what you all have to say to further what I have prepared and planned already.
As for the reds being more active that's really an estimation because I've heard literally equal counts on all my bookmarked links regarding foxes that some are more calm, snuggly, lower tempered, amicable, trained, docile and not as destructive (both russian counts and regular semi-domesticated breeds if at all). Then others being crafty devils who need intense supervision, proofing, meal schedules, socialising, outdoor time and overall more work than what they observed elsewhere (from friends or foxes they met prior).
This is why this is mostly a gamble of what personality of a fox I'll be getting so I need to make anything else I can control as well as it can be. Also why a fur farm isn't my ideal choice despite having so many here in Canada, as they've been bred to anticipate the owner who feeds them while simultaneously terrified of the very same hand. Over years that doesn't do much good to a fox's genealogy and plasticity over years. It's not always the case as a lot of farm rescues turn out outstandingly well like Ayla (thedo.do.com/ayla). But paying +7000$ for a domesticated one is out of the question, I'd pay that much for an Aardwolf here or half that overseas, but not that much for a fox despite their goofy playful nature and reduced aggression.
(Btw I'm 24 if that clears any guesses as to who's speaking)
