Photo taken in August, 2012 @ Natura Artis Magistra, Royal Amsterdam Zoo, The Netherlands
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
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 love it when you love my work, but please, if you want to use it in any other medium, ask my permission first.
