Daylight suits to fennec fox by woxys Daylight suits to fennec fox by woxys
Fennec fox (vulpes zerda, fenek berbersky) from ZOO Dvur Kralove nad Labem, Czech republic :D








Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:
____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

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 | chihuahuas (dogs) are NOT related to fennec foxes, athough some people think so!
ZOO: in the Czech republic, fennec fox is kept in ZOO Prague, ZOO Olomouc and ZOO Dvur Kralove nad Labem.

Hello, I have been looking at your Fennec pictures (Very good, by the way) and was wondering if I could use them as refrence pictures for characters, since I'm thinking about writing a story/fanfiction that includes many types of foxes You said in the description to ask, so.... Yeah. Please get back to me if I can use them for refrences, in the mean time I'll be looking for others. Thanks.
