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.

You always do so lovely photos of this fennec fox, how do you create this depth? It looks like you´re able to place lamps and stuff all around his cage - but a zoo wouldn´t allow this, would it?

:love: incredible shot, very dramatic w/ the light fur on a black background!

would you mind if i drew this and posted it? i won't make it a print, it'll fall under the category of 'fan art'.

I simply love these pictures you take. The darkness in the back and the lit up face of the fox are adorable and blend so well.
