Small eared foxes settle at Ecopark

Five miniature Fennec foxes  have appeared at Kharkiv Feldman Ecopark, its press service states (RU).

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.
