Transcript of Animal Adaptation
Adaptation #1 Their large ears help dissipate body heat on hot days in the desert. Their ears are 6 inches long, that's 40-70% of their whole body length!
Adaptation #2 The fennec fox has thick, insultated fur that helps keep them warm during the night and cool during the day. They also have fur on the soles of their feet acting like snowshoes against hot sand. Behavioral
Adaptation #1 Not much is know about Fennec Foxes in their natural habitat. While in captivity though, their social unit seems to be a mated pair and their offspring. Even after a new litter, the previous litter still remains within the family. Behavioral
Adaptation #2 Fennec foxes are nocturnal, so they spend the heat of the day inside, and hunt in the cool night. They also make their burrows at the foot of dunes so it is more moist and stays cool during the day when they’re sleeping.
to Survival The fennec fox’s primary threat is trapping for commercial use. They are captured and sold to tourists or exhibited. Though this is restricted to certain areas, human settlements also reduce the number of fennec foxes in the area.
Adaptation #3 The fennec fox is the only carnivore in the Sahara Desert that can survive without actually drinking from a body of water. Their kidneys are designed to restrict water loss, and their huge burrows can have dew on them, which the fennec foxes consume. They also get moisture from prey. Regan Stehle
