Nature is pretty amazing with all of its diversity, isn’t it? Cue the Fennec Fox, one of Saharan Africa’s cutest critters. From his satellite dish-ears to the tip of his tail, Wild Republic’s Fennec (which is Arabic for “fox”) fox just oozes charm. Quality craftsmanship brings the Fennec to life in a truly unique and cuddly way that other toy makers just can’t match. The Fennec has a tan coat, which helps it blend in better with its surroundings. If you lived in the world’s biggest sandbox, you’d want tan fur too!
Even though the Fennec Fox is nocturnal (meaning he mostly only comes out at night), he has super furry paws to protect him from the heat. “But if he only comes out at night, why does he need super furry paws?” Have you ever had to wake up and do stuff when you didn’t want to? In the Fennec’s case, having to chase down a meal or flee from predators means doing things at inopportune times – like the middle of the day when it’s crazy hot outside. And those huge ears do more for him than just give him a funny appearance. The Sahara is a hot place, and the Fennec doesn’t sweat like humans do. So those big ears of his help him regulate his body temperature. Each night, the Fennec dines on everything from birds’ eggs to small rodents, lizards and bugs. (You try getting delivery out in the middle of the desert!)
