Meet the psycho fox by woxys Meet the psycho fox by woxys
Fennec fox (vulpes zerda, fenek berbersky) from Zoo Dvur Kralove nad Labem, Czech republic.

I got to be very lucky because only a day before my visit, the zoo announced arrival of new pair of fennec foxes (they have a pair of quite old fennec foxes in incredibly huge enclosure - that habitat is SO huge that I had to laugh when I saw those tiny foxes in). They live in a new habitat that is much smaller than the one inhabited by old pair, but it is still nice size for such a tiny fox. They have a decent indoor enclosure and small but cute outside exposition which is connected. Foxes were very curious and very active, investigating their new living conditions. So they were running everywhere, checking stones, trunks and even visitors, they came as close as they could :D it was lovely. Also, this photo WAS NOT taken with a flash, of course. I never use flash when I photograph animals. The green light in its eyes is caused by natural light :) I do not think the fox is ill with eyes. That was just a light.

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.

Gorgeous eyes... but she looks blind...
woxys Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014
I think it was the light - the fox had just a reflection like a cat :)

Oh I'm sure, I just think it makes zir look blind. Nothing wrong with being blind, critters tend to manage that much better than humans do after all.
