DOES AN AFRICAN FENNEC
FOX HAVE TO SURVIVE IN THE DESERT?
The Fennec Fox seems to be the only carnivore living in the Sahara desert able to survive without free water. Their kidneys are adapted to restrict water loss, their extensive burrowing may cause formation of dew, which can then be comused, and they will recieve moisture from the food they eat.
Their burowing and nocturnal lifestyle helps restrict water loss.
The Fennec Fox has large ears which are usally 15 centimetres help dissipate body heat on hot days in the desert.
Their thick fur helps
insulate them from the cold desert nights.
Their sandy coloured fur helps them to reflect heat, and also provides excellent camoflauge.
Fennec Foxes also have thick fur on the soles of their feet,which insulate against the hot sand of the desert.This extra fur also affords them excellent traction in the loose sand
