Grumpy baby fox: watching YOU by woxys Grumpy baby fox: watching YOU by woxys
Very adorable baby Bat-eared fox / Big-eared dog (Otocyon megalotis, pes usaty) from ZOO Prague :aww:


Story of the photo: Bat-eared foxes (both adults and babies) have very cute, but at the same time somehow grumpy faces :giggle: ZOO in Prague breeds them very successfully, but I was lucky to see so young puppies for the very first time :aww: puppies were shy, but this one came closer to me and it gave me extremely cute, but also a bit grumpy and cautious look. What a sweetheart! :heart:

Interesting facts: Bat-eared foxes are quite unusual canines: 80% of their food consists of insects. There are also doubts, if bat-eared fox is really a right fox or not. Some research says that they are close to genus Vulpes | after Giant Armadillo and cetaceans (dolphins), Bat-eared foxes are mammals with highest amount of teeth – they have amazing 52 teeth! | they live in burrows – mated pair and their youngs | Bat-eared foxes live in monogamous pairs. After two months, female gives birth to 3-5 puppies and both parents take care of them | Bat-eared foxes are mostly nocturnal | people hunt bat-eared foxes for their wonderful fur and for meat.
