    This Delightful Pet Arctic Fox Laughs Just Like A Human

    It's literally ROFL.

    A pet arctic fox named Archer cracks up in response to laughter and sounds uncannily human.

    Kristina Shafer, Archer's owner, wrote on Instagram that when her boyfriend laughs, her 4-year-old fox responds in kind.

    Shafer, who lives in Michigan, told ABC News that she adopted Archer from a breeder in Indiana when he was just a cub.

    "Arctic foxes are definitely not for everyone since they're not the easiest pet to have, but I did a lot of research and decided they were for me," Schafer said to ABC News.

    She added that while foxes take a lot of dedication and training — potty training has not been easy — Archer has been "so worth it."

    BuzzFeed News reached out to Shafer for additional information.
