A Marble Fox, also known as a Canadian Marble Fox or Arctic Marble Fox, is a domestic breed of fox known for its striking coat pattern. Its unique coloring resulted from a specific type of genetic mutation, that was achieved through selective breeding.

Marble foxes are commonly found in a small area of Canada. They are known for their beautiful coat that combines white, black and gray colors in a marbled or spotted pattern. They often have dark markings on their face and ears, giving them a unique look.

Naturally, the Mable fox weighs between 3 and 9 pounds, and measures between 18 and 26 inches in length. Like other domesticated foxes, Marble foxes can be playful, curious and intelligent. However, they also have some of their wild instincts, making them a more challenging to care for.

Marble foxes are solitary animals, and each fox has its own territory. They are omnivores and their diet consists of small mammals, insects, birds, berries, fruits, and fish.

When domesticated, they require ample space to roam and play, as well as an environment that keeps them mentally stimulated. They would require a diet that closely mimics the one they would have in the wild.

Marble foxes are monogamous animals, meaning they mate for life. The breeding season is once a year, during which the male marble fox will become territorial. They usually have a litter of about 2 to 5 kits. These kits are born blind and deaf, making them dependent on their mother for the first few weeks of life.
