Fox Party

We recently took a trip down to the Judith A Bassett Canid Education and Conservation Center (JABCECC) to play with foxes! My friend, Lex (see her instagram here), absolutely loves foxes. With me being more familiar with ocean animals, this was a whole new world for me.

A few new things were learned:

  • Russia domesticated foxes and bred them for their genetic mutations resulting in fur color and patterns
  • Some foxes are raised and killed for their fur
  • The foxes pictured are the same species (The white ones are not arctic foxes)
  • Foxes make horrible pets, because they pee and poo everywhere (we were warned of this)

JABCECC is still under construction, but you can see them and some of their animal ambassadors around San Diego at local events. I recommend you check them out because they care very deeply about their mission, and their canines are just too adorable!

P.S. They have New Guinea Singing Dogs too
