The Fennec Fox (Vulpes zerda) is a small canid which is native to the deserts of North Africa. It is the smallest of the canines but has the largest ears in proportion to its body size. Fennec foxes are found in North Africa from Morocco to Egypt, south to north Niger and Sudan, east to Sinai Peninsula and Kuwait.

A male fox is called a ‘reynard’, the female is called a ‘vixen’ and young are called ‘kits’. A group of foxes is called a ‘skulk’ or a ‘leash’.

FENNEC FOX DESCRIPTION

The Fennec Fox measures 35 – 40 centimetres (14 – 16 inches) in length and weighs up to 1.5 kilograms (3.3 pounds). It has a bushy, black tipped tail which measures 17 – 30 centimetres (7 – 12 inches) long. Their tails are known as ‘sweeps’ and they help the fox change direction when running as well as warming their nose and feet when it is curled up asleep. Their thick fur is pale brown to almost white in colour enabling them to camouflage easily in their desert environment. Thick fur may seem unusual for a desert animal, however, they need it for insulation during cold desert nights. Their fur reflects the sun during the day and conserves heat at night. There is also thick fur on the soles of their feet which protects them against the hot sand.

Fennec Foxes have sharp, curved claws which help them dig their burrows. The Fennec fox shows close resemblance to its cousin, the fox, apart from its exceptionally large ears which stand permanently erect and can measure 15 centimetres (6 inches) in length. Their ears are so sensitive that they can hear insects such as beetles and locust walking on the sand and also locate underground prey. Their ears also radiate body heat and helps keep the foxes cool in the searing heat of their desert environment.
