The smallest species of the family Canidae, the fennec fox is a nocturnal fox endemic to North Africa. Their most notable feature is their enormous ears, which are so sensitive that they allow the fennec fox to hear prey moving around underground. History: While the global population of the fennec fox is unknown, it is assumed that their numbers are in a good place based on how commonly they’re observed in the wild. As such, they’re currently classified as a species of least concern on the conservation status spectrum. With the proper registration, fennec foxes can be owned as pets. However, it’s probably best you introduce yourself to this beautiful animal with our figurine first! Scientific Name: Vulpes zerda Characteristics: Although there is a lack of knowledge about their behavior in the wild, captive fennec foxes are incredibly social with one another, and will even sleep in groups.
