Asian fennec fox laws

In Asia, Japan particularly encourages the owning of fennec foxes as pets. In Korea it is also legal although much less common.

Japan – Legal

Fennec foxes, red foxes, arctic foxes, pale foxes and other non threatened species, regardless of their colour, can be legally possessed without the need of a license. The foxes must come from breeders, fur farms or zoological facilities. Keeping a wild-caught fox as a pet is illegal.
