Fennec fox (vulpes zerda, fenek berbersky) from ZOO Dvur Kralove nad Labem, Czech republic :D

Story of the photo: I was standing near the cage for fennec foxes, wainting for their interesting pose. But they were sleeping. I did not want to wake them up somehow badly, so I was still wainting. But then my father gave me a call. Ringing of my cell phone, openning theme of ,,Cobra 11", German TV action serie, woke this fennec up XD the foxie obviously does not like Cobra 11 :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.

please, can you share the link to photos instead of photos? :oops:
I am happy you like my work, thank you - but facebook owns all the photos one uploads, so I am nervous about such reposting :(

Awesome shot!

Oh and you forgot that fennec foxes have special kidneys so they can survive without water.

thank you :dance:

I really can not feature all facts about them :giggle:

Your welcome! :D

Yeah, I know what you mean. The only reason I actually knew that was because I did heavy research on them. I'm making a book with a fennec fox as one of the main characters. After all, when you are making a book you have to do some extensive research on things related to the story.

Fennec foxes are also one of the canids that play like a feline, pouncing and batting with their prey instead of just eating it.

I was playing a game with my friend where we had to name as many animals as possible without repeating. I said Fennec Fox and he told me that didn't exsist. I'm going to use this amazingly cute and well taken photo to prove it's real.
