"The fennec fox is the smallest of all the world's foxes, but its large ears, measuring 6 inches, appear to be on loan from a bigger relative."
"These foxes dwell in small communities, each inhabited by perhaps ten individuals. Like other canids, male fennecs become aggressive competitors when mating season arrives each year."
"Fennec foxes are opportunistic eaters. They forage for plants but also eat rodents, eggs, reptiles, and insects."
"Like most desert dwellers, the fennec fox has developed the ability to go for long periods without water.
These foxes are cream-colored with black-tipped tails. Their adorable appearance makes them favorites of the captive pet trade, and local peoples also hunt the fennec fox for its fur. Little is known about the status of wild fennec fox populations."
