  • We met the very cute and very bizarre result of an almost 60-year-long experiment: they’re foxes that have been specially bred for their dog-like friendliness toward people. We do a little behavior research of our own, and discover what scientists continue to learn from the world’s most famous experiment in domestication. The fox experiment continues under the supervision of Lyudmila Trut at the Institute of Cytology and Genetics. Her book “How to Tame a Fox (and Build a Dog)”, co-authored by Lee Alan Dugatkin, details the history and science behind the experiment.Video by: William Poor, Alex Perkin, Cory ZapatkaAudio: Andrew MarinoAdditional Reporting: Rachel BeckerHost: William PoorDirector of Audience Development: Ruben SalvadoriSocial Media Manager: Dilpreet KainthSubscribe: http://bit.ly/2FqJZMlLike Verge Science on Facebook: http://bit.ly/2hoSukOFollow on Twitter: http://bit.ly/2Kr29B9Follow on Instagram: https://goo.gl/7ZeLvXRead More: http://www.theverge.comCommunity guidelines: http://bit.ly/2D0hlAvSubscribe to Verge on YouTube for explainers, product reviews, technology news, and more: http://goo.gl/G5RXGs gene editing
