Fennec Fox

Collection of scaled drawings of Fennec Fox in various poses

The Fennec Fox (Vulpes zerda), found in northern Africa as well as the Sinai and Arabian peninsulas, is a small-sized fox distinguished by its tiny head and large ears. In addition to it being a distinctive feature, the ears of the Fennec Fox work to dissipate heat for this desert dweller.

The Fennec Fox also has thick, cream-colored fur which works to deflect the heat of the sun during the day. Ultimately, the Fennec Fox will avoid heat by spending its days burrowed underground, feeding on insects and smaller animals at night.
