Big eyes and giant ears identify the desert fox as nocturnal predator and dweller of the Sahara. The earlobes serve as blood-coolers. Hairy feet make sure that this small creature doesn't burn its paws on the hot sand.
If I had to choose the cutest creature on earth a fennec would be one of the most serious contestants! I remember seeing these uebersweets in a zoo for the 1st time, I stood there staring at them thinking I could do that forever...heh. Thanks sis!
