Soviet fox domestication

Soviet fox domestication

In the 1950s, a Soviet geneticist began an experiment of fox domestication. He selectively bred foxes for 'friendliness'. After a few generations, the foxes had other surprising traits like better social skills, larger litter sizes, curlier tails, droopier ears and showed skeletal changes (making them look 'cuter', like dogs).
