Fennec foxes are legal to be kept as pets in the United States, that doesn’t mean that they’ll be like your typical pet dog. They’re nocturnal and are incredibly energetic and curious about everything.
Originally from the Sahara, those incredibly cute, over sized ears of theirs are to keep them cool, as well as allow them to hear preys moving underground. They have the energy of a young dog, and have the flexibility of a cat! In other words, they’re a handful!
But sometimes they CAN be like your typical Fido. Take this video as an example. Just watching this fox run back and forth and how focused it is made me smile so much! I think my favorite part in the whole video is just watching those enormous ears flop around! And maybe the accompanying intense music in the background. At least its curiosity and energy is being released all at the same time!
