Foxes are not omnivores.

Foxes are carnivores, not omnivores. They have sharp teeth, a small intestine about two loops long, and a vgetarian diet can kill them. How are those omnivore traits?

And if foxes make terrible pets, how do you guys explain this ? What do you think dogs are? They're domesticated wolves, an animal that was once wild. Kokkino (talk) 11:45, July 26, 2019 (UTC)

foxes are actually omnivores, according to this peer reviewed journal. just because an animal has carnivorous traits does not mean that they exclusively consume flesh. gray foxes, for instance, have also been shown to eat fruit. also, the youtube video you linked showed foxes that were specifically domesticated in a 60 year long experiment, which probably indicates that its not very easy to domesticate them i.e. keep them as pets.

I'd also like to link to a University of Michigan page that also states they are omnivores, not carnivores. Foxes can make bad pets, but rescue ones (like Juniper, Fig, and now Elmwood, as seen on facebook and youtube) or ones domesticated for that purpose are a lot different than your stereotypical wild fox. We shouldn't be promoting keeping wild animals as pets here. Jayce  ( 17:13, 7/26/2019 )
