Fennec fox (vulpes zerda, fenek berbersky) from ZOO Olomouc, Czech republic :D



Name: Fennec fox (Vulpes zerda or fennecus zerda)
Location: Sahara Desert - North Africa and Sinai
Size: 40 cm long body + 25 cm long tail weight: 1,5 kg
Diet: rodents, insects, birds, eggs, desert vegetation (fruit, roots, berries)
Conservation status: Least Concern
Interesting facts: female fox gives birth to 2-5 kits and both parents then take care of the babies: mother does not allow the male to come closer to cubs, but the male still brings her some food | fennec foxes use their huge ears for good hearing and also for thermoregulation! | fennec foxes have fur on their paws, so they can run on hot sand | fennec foxes have black tips on their tails | fennec foxes are mostly active during night | fennec fox is said to be the only species of fox, which can be kept as real domestical pet | fennec foxes are surprisingly swift, as they can run fast and jump very hight | fennec foxes are the smallest species of all foxes
ZOO: in the Czech republic, fennec fox is kept in ZOO Prague, ZOO Olomouc and ZOO Dvur Kralove nad Labem.

At my zoo they try to encourage people to help save them, because even though they don't hurt crops,animals, or such. But people still hunt them.

 I Just Don't Understand Why People Would Kill Another Living Thing For No Good Reason, It's Just Down Right Cruel And It's No Different Than Killing Our Own! If We Where To Kill Something We Should Have A Good Reason For Doing So, Such As Food, And That's About It. There Are Times When People Would Kill Wolves And Bears Just Because They Where Going After They're Livestock, But They Were Only Hungry So That Did Not Count As A Good Reason For Killing Them! I Mean, Come On, There's Plenty Of Livestock That Can Replace The Ones They Lost!
