Most terrific creature EVER??? by woxys Most terrific creature EVER??? by woxys
Fennec fox (vulpes zerda, fenek berbersky) from ZOO Olomouc, Czech republic :D

Entered into the Yawning Animals Contest held by :iconcrazy-4-animals:

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:


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.

For such a small fox, this animal is quite interesting.. It looks like it's saying "Back away from me." Yet sweet at the same time. It somewhat looks like a demon. The lighting in the photo is amazing. You captured the expression on the animals face very well. The sand is a great way to camouflage it's body into it's natural habitat. Your camera work is nice and steady.
I myself could never take a picture as well as this.
I have no suggestions what so ever!
An AMAZING job you did.
I can't help but look at your gallery!

this is a ferocious-adorable facial expression. its a very comical-looking creature when its making this face (large narrow mouth, tiny teeth, squinted eyes, and huge ears) and even when its not it looks cute. it seems like its screaming "rawr! i ish a monsta! teehee..."
it may be just me, but it looks like the shot could use some color variation. its all tan, but its not like you could pick up and move the little guy haha. but its probably just me since im more into bright color and contrast. great job overall and please check out my work as well. :)
