Featured Creature

Find a new furry, feathered, or finned animal every day with the brand-new FEATURED CREATURE!

Ever heard of the FENNEC?



The fennec is the smallest kind of fox! It only weighs about 3 pounds, but has very large ears, which grow to be about 5 inches long! Living in the deserts of northern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, it spends most of its days burrowed deep in the sand. Its light coloring helps it to blend into the sand to avoid enemies.

Learn more about the fennec or discover new friends from the animal kingdom!
