Photo taken in August, 2012 @ Natura Artis Magistra, Royal Amsterdam Zoo, The Netherlands

EDITED
I adore this photo, but it could do with a little tweaking.

I can only hope the band The Script doesn't mind me using their song title for this lovely photo, and will at least remember I'm a huge fan :D ;)
A little snapshot of the adorable Fennec Fox couple of which one is our dear Finn. So glad the zoo found him girl! (With whom he gets along mightily, you can see, and well 2 litters finish the story ;))

Species: Fennec Fox (Fennek vos of Woestijnvos)

Latin name: Vulpes Zerda

Originates from Northern Africa.

Current status: Least Concern

 Did you know: 

…The word “Fennec” is Arabic for Fox, so basically, we call him “Fox Fox”.

…Its large ears are its most distinct feature, and serve to dissipate heat.

I know. I meant the way they were curled up together.

So they´re much like cats :D when cats are hungry, they tend to get overactive, while they lie around and sleep most time of the day!
