Weighing three to 3.5 pounds, the fennec fox is the world’s smallest canid.
Northern Africa, Sinai and Arabian peninsulas
Deserts, arid areas
Vegetation, rodents, birds, and their eggs, lizards, insects
Two to five young
Travels in family groups, in pairs, or alone; active at night
Those satellite-dish ears help the fox hunt at night—it can hear prey moving underground—and keep cool.
Fur on the soles of the fennec fox’s feet help protect them from hot sand.
