The Fennec Fox (Vulpes zerda) is a small crepuscular fox native to the deserts of North Africa, ranging from Western Sahara and Mauritania to the Sinai Peninsula¹. Its most distinctive feature is its unusually large ears, which serve to dissipate heat and listen for underground prey. The Fennec Fox is the smallest fox species, weighing up to 1.5 kg (3.3 lb) and measuring up to 41 cm (16 in) in length, plus a 25 cm (10 in) long tail. It has a thick, sand-colored fur that reflects sunlight during the day and keeps it warm at night. It has a black-tipped tail and dark markings on the face and ears. It has a slender muzzle and large, dark eyes. It has sharp claws and furry feet that help it dig and walk on hot sand. It has a dental formula of 3.1.4.2 3.1.4.3 × 2 = 42 with small and narrow canines².

The Fennec Fox is mainly nocturnal, spending the day in underground burrows that can be as large as 120 m2 (1,300 sq ft) and shared with other foxes. It is an opportunistic eater, feeding on insects, small mammals, birds, eggs, reptiles, and plants. It can survive without drinking water, obtaining most of its moisture from its food. It can also produce highly concentrated urine to reduce water loss. It is a social animal, living in family groups of up to 10 individuals. It communicates with a variety of vocalizations, such as barks, howls, whines, and chirps. It marks its territory with urine and feces, and also with a musky secretion from its anal glands. It mates once a year, between January and March, and gives birth to a litter of two to five cubs after a gestation period of about 50 days. The cubs are born blind and helpless, and stay in the den for the first two months. They reach sexual maturity at nine to 11 months, and can live up to 14 years in captivity and 10 years in the wild. The Fennec Fox’s main predators are the Verreaux’s eagle-owl, jackals, and other large carnivores³.
