Fennec Fox As A Pet

The Fennec fox is a lovely, clean, pleasant and loving animal that may be easily domesticated. Nonetheless, you can't count on to easily take this beautiful creature home. Basically, this is because the animal would die very quickly in its new habitat that we call home.

If it survives, it will probably lead a miserable life despite the fact that you give it plenty of love and care. Besides, in lots of international locations, the possession of Fennec foxes is illegal. This is basically attributable to the fact that the Fennec fox is native to the Sahara deserts, however in addition they exist in the Arabian Peninsula.

The significance of habitat
Habitat is essential in tracing the outlines of the evolution of fauna and flora species which adapt to the environment. More exactly, the radical nature of the unbearable desert local weather is the primary factor which, via millennia, has fine-tuned the physical frame and habits of the Fennec fox.

Would you keep an Emperor penguin as a pet in your home? May you provide an intensive frozen rocky place at -forty °C, battered by finishless blinding blizzards? I don't think so. Not even a zoo can optimally recreate that habitat.

In the same way, it is just not possible for us to recreate the desert in our homes. The Fennec fox may very well be an excellent pet in an oasis located within the desert or on the outskirts of one; but because it has been particularly adapted to survive in the Saharan heat, it would degenerate in our delicate climate.

The morphology of the Fennec fox
The Fennec fox is the smallest of the canidae family, even smaller than a Chihuahua dog. It weighs between 1 and 1.5 kg (2.2 and 3.three lbs). Its body measures no more than 21 cm (0.6 ft) up to its tail. An adult Fennec fox doesn't measure any more than forty one cm (1.three ft), and its tail is between 20 and 30 cm (0.6 and 1 ft). It has hairy pads on its feet to stop them from burning on the new sand.

Nonetheless, the physical attribute that distinguishes it from other foxes is its pair of spectacular hyper-developed ears. These ears have a purpose. The first is to vent heat accrued in their tiny body. The second function is to capture even the slightest sound produced by their prey.

The Fennec fox's dense coat is sand-colored on the back and sides whilst the belly is a greyish-white and wispier than the hair on its back.

Behavioural habits of the Fennec fox
The Fennec fox is nocturnal. Their food regimen consists of rodents, reptiles, bugs, eggs, birds and fruit reminiscent of dates, blackberries and berries. They're capable of leaping a considerable height which helps them hunt and combat when predators attack.

The caracal and African owl are their essential rivals. Fennec foxes live in underground burrows (up to 10 meters deep), where the temperature is lower than that of the outside. In the wild they live for approximately 10-12 years.

The domesticated Fennec fox
When you've got been irresponsible and made the mistake of adopting a Fennec fox, because you have seen it in a television advert and find it very cute, you should know that the Fennec fox is strictly nocturnal. In the event you confine it in a cage at night, it will die.

In the event you let it loose, it will tear aside cushions in an try to hide food or make a hole within the couch or mattress to make a burrow so it feels comfortable and warm in your home.

The Fennec fox can dig as much as 6 meters (19.6 ft) of earth per day. If kept in a backyard, it will most likely escape and any canine could go after it. If you happen to live in a flat, life will probably be worse for it. The Fennec fox has an ideal leaping ability and may get on any table or shelf, destroying everything on them.
