When I first heard about the Siberian farm fox experiment, I thought, someone has to sell these domesticated silver foxes in America — and now someone is doing just that:

Are foxes expensive?

Just like some dog breeds, foxes are fairly expensive and are offered at $5,950.

Transportation from Russia and extensive paperwork is a significant part of the cost.

Can I breed tame foxes?

Institute of Cytology and Genetics is the only breeder for domesticated silver foxes that were selected for many generations. All foxes come neutered. It is illegal to breed Sibirian tame foxes bought from Siberian farm.

    I still remember how amazing that study was when I first read about it 15 or so years ago.
