Birfday Stek - Happy 5 years, Azzy
Filet Mignon for Asriel to celebrate his 5th birthday today! ... now I'm hungry...
Asriel is a tame American-bred red fox of the White Mark color phase/morph/subspecies. He is from a dealer in Pennsylvania, but made available to us by Dave and Tammy of Tiny Tracks, a breeder which I highly recommend! You can get one just like him at http://www.tinytracksexoticanimals.com/
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 (they BITE... soft, medium, AND HARD... you have to learn exactly when to stop petting them!).
Every potential fox owner/companion MUST have an outdoor pen built fox-proof (the biggest expense in owning a fox...1-3 thousand dollars); here is how I built my outdoor pen: http://i.imgur.com/gKF9qL0.gifv
