Five miniature Fennec foxes have appeared at Kharkiv Feldman Ecopark, its press service states (RU).
They all live in the same cage, so visitors of the park can watch them. “They are very social: calm, affectionate, interesting and neat,” said Ecopark vet, Anna Zhukovskaya.
Animal care experts said the foxes have the biggest ears among predators: “Big ears are necessary for thermoregulation and perfect hearing. In the wild, they hunt small vertebrates and insects,” said Deputy Director of the Ecopark on zootechnical matters Valery Ivashchenko.
