Terezka... I have not seen her since that first day I remember how tiny she was and how I hugged her... but I have not visited North Bohemia since that day, which makes me sad. I hope this year I will see Terezka again, bringing you some photos! But at first I need a job to get money so I can travel to see her

Please, NO stupid comments about the leash! This baby fox was saved by nice people who have already rised or saved several foxes, who now have a happy life. This baby fox was walking on leash, because it was supposed to meet two silver foxes in a cage. Through the fence, they got to know each other. This tactic worked very well, Terezka now lives together with them and they have a great relationship. I got to hug her! and she was named after me!

Fennec fox (vulpes zerda, fenek berbersky) from Zoo Olomouc, Czech republic.
Haha, I think he was just asleep! I also snapped him when he was leaving the darker den between the rocks: so maybe he is just gazing into the Sun, so he has that expression
