Edit 9/20/13! I also have a fox blog on Tumblr in addition to this thread here. I will post in both here and on my blog and both will contribute to adding cuteness to the internet. Also noted one will not detract from the other. Crazy Cute Foxes! http://foxesarethebestanimals.tumblr.com Also located in my signature! I've decided to make a thread that shows not only pictures of foxes, but other animals as well, including a coyote. These are pictures from my adventures at my internship. I work there every other week as a volunteer, taking care of them, cleaning their cages or what have you, but after I finish, I get to play with them, talk to them and build relationships of trust. I didn't want to clutter up my old thread with off-topic pictures, and I also wanted something a little more up-to-date. I'll also provide a bit of background for the animals whose pictures I'll be posting: Just a small disclaimer: The animals in question are under the best care possible and due to their circumstances, being in a near-domesticate state, releasing them in the wild is an impossibility and would be a major detriment due to their inability to survive. The reason I could not enter the cages is the owner was putting on a show for elementary school students and couldn't let me in unsupervised, but she trusted me enough to sit next to the animals and get them to know me better. But keep in mind that I am aware that there is a small possibility of being nipped at by animals, that risk still exists, and I respect that. I take very precaution possible to avoid that at all costs. I approach them slowly, and on my knees (eye-level), and if they willingly approach me, it's safe to assume that they won't bite. Skitter: One of three foxes who is very loving, sociable and downright adorable. Despite having wild instincts, she's essentially domesticated and very hyper. Play-biting, pulling on shoelaces and stealing cameras maybe, but hardly dangerous. Very friendly and fluffy, the way it should be. Call her name and she'll run towards you while making funny noises (squeaking/squealing fox noises) Tazzina: A rescued coyote; she was brought in by a hunter who killer who mother, but took pity on the poor animal and gave it up for adoption. Original infected with fleas, mange and poor health, she was nursed back to excellent health and lives a wonderful life with the couple who own the sanctuary. She is also taken on walks and also enjoys the company of people. Like Skitter, she too will go crazy and lovey-dovey whenever people go up to her pen and will kiss you all day long given the chance. While affection is uncharacteristic for a coyote, it's very heartening to be near a predatory animal and not get attack. Here's Tazzina, the adorable coyote Warning: Spoilers inside! Now, for Skitter, who went bonkers when she heard me call her name. Nuzzled my hand on several occasions and that made my heart explode from the gesture. Very unexpected Warning: Spoilers inside! I hope you all enjoy them as I much as I have. I believe animals deserve to be loved and respected and not abused in a horrific manner. There are profound psychological benefits to interacting and petting them. Enjoy!
