|Fennec Foxes are recognized by their sandy-coloured fur and large ears|
| Vulpes zerda|
|Range of V. zerda|
The Fennec Fox has large, bat-like ears which serve two functions - to act as radars for listening to its surroundings and as well as to cool itself off while surviving in the humid conditions of the deserts in which it is found in. They have pointed snouts and a rather large head in comparison to its body size. They have four small paws covered in delicate fur.
Their fur is a dominant creamish brown colour while the tip of their tails tend to be darker.
Found throughout the Sahara Desert. Fennecs typically live in underground burrows in which it is cooler throughout the day.
