There's a foxy lady burning up the Internet, and (surprise!) her last name isn't Kardashian.
Rylai, a pet white marble red fox, is fanning a viral forest fire with her cuteness – clocking more than 63,000 followers on Instagram so far.
The young pet – whose name is pronounced Rye-Lie – comes from generations of pet lines, according to her Facebook page, and would never survive in the wild. Her account includes adorable images of her yawns, cuddly naps and yummy meals, but as she grows, she will be more difficult to keep as an indoor pet and may require an outdoor enclosure.
