Fennec, standing

Product 46 of 48

The fennec (vulpes zerda) is a little fox that lives in the deserts of Northern Africa, it is known for its big ears. Through blood vessels just below the skin of their ears they can dissipate warmth if they get too hot. Furthermore they serve as amplifiers for even the dullest sounds. Thus the fennec is able to hear and locate his prey underground, even during the night, at which time it mostly hunts.

The body is adapted to the hot and dry environment. Its kidneys are very effective and water conserving and the paws are covered in fur, isolating them from the hot sand.

Fennecs dig their dens into the sand, the more compact the ground the more complex do these dens get. A family, meaning a mating pair and their offspring, sometimes even those from the last year, lives together in a den. They lovingly care for each other, while the mother stays with the kits the father feeds and protects her. They are very fond of cuddles and plays. Tthey tend to sleep very close to one another and even the grown fennecs love to play, also with other grown fennecs.

Don't you see the smile in this plush fennec's face because it can't await to play with somebody?
