Caption: Fennec fox. Fennec (Vulpes zerda) sitting on sand. This small fox has thick fur on the soles of its feet to enable it to walk on sand in its desert environment. Its large ears help it to locate prey as it hunts at night, while its thick fur insulates it against the rapid cooling of the desert at night. The fennec feeds on insects, lizards, rodents, birds and plants. It can go without water for extended periods. Groups of 10- 15 foxes live together, resting in their dens during the day. Fennecs live in the Sahara Desert of north Africa, and the Middle East.
