The cutest pet in the world? A 5-month-old domesticated fox named Rylai

And you thought your pet was cute! This is Rylai, a tiny domesticated fox who has a great following on Instagram and Facebook already – and she’s not even 6 months old.

Rylai might look like an arctic fox but she’s not – she’s actually a red fox (Vulpes vulpes) and her colour variation is called white marble, which is only produced in captivity. Rylai is a pet who gets spoiled rotten (as can be seen on Instagram) and she’s pretty much treated like a dog – housetraining and all (which she’s still working on).

While it’d be great if we could all own a fox, there’s one thing you should probably consider before getting one – that musk smell.

Rylai’s human says of it: ‘Currently, Rylai’s musk is very mild smelling. As she matures, her musk may become stronger. This is something I knew before I got a fox and I am okay with it. I keep her well groomed and her litterbox is always tidy but I also accept and understand that the foxy musk is a part of her’.
