2. Getting there was like driving through the first season of True Detective.
3. When I finally got there, I heard howls the second I got out of the car. Wait, do foxes howl?
4. SURPRISE! Turns out foxes aren't the only whiskered BBs that live here, and the howling came from the New Guinea Singing Dogs. Nice.
5. The actual fox encounter happens outside in a closed-off space. I sat there trying not to cry as each fox was presented to me like a little gift.
6. They're legit as mischievous as their reputation suggests.
7. Is it just me, or do foxes smell like Jell-O?
8. They're snack motivated just like me!
9. Yes, you can pet them like dogs.
10. You can definitely boop their snoots.
11. AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, you can hold them like babies. ( ɵ̥̥ ˑ̫ ɵ̥̥)
