The fennec fox is the smallest of all foxes. It has huge ears. It lives in burrows it digs in the sand. The fennec fox is active at night, when it preys on small rodents, birds, insects and lizards. Fennec foxes mate for life. A litter is born in spring each year. The fennec fox can be found in deserts of North Africa and the Middle East.
