Fennec Fox

By; Shelby Bishoff & Brienna Carragher

The Fennec fox or Fennec is a small nocturnal fox found in the Sahara of North Africa. Its most distinctive feature is its unusually large ears, which also serves to dissipate heat.

The fennec fox is well adapted to life in the desert. Its feet have soft fur… on the soles to protect them from the heat and aid in walking on loose sand.

Its large ears function like radiators to disperse heat.

The fox can survive without water for extended periods, taking moisture from food and staying below ground during the heat of the day.

The fennec fox mates for life and lives in family units of up to ten individuals.

So I think that the Fennec fox will be fine from the climate change.
