Fennec Fox

Vulpes zerda

The fennec fox is the smallest member of the Canid (dog) family but with the proportionally largest ears. Like most foxes it is nocturnal (active at night).



Size: 35 - 40cm
Weight: 1 - 1.5kg



The fennec fox is found among the sand dunes of the North African deserts. Small family groups shelter in burrows excavated in the sand.



They feed mainly on locusts, rodents, lizards, birds and also vegetable matter (roots). They drink water when available, but can survive without water for long periods.



After a pregnancy of about 50 days, a litter of 2 - 5 blind young are born in a burrow.



Fennec foxes are not classed as endangered, however they are hunted and trapped throughout their range to be used in exhibitions for tourists.
