Project Noah Fact of the Day: The fennec fox has evolved effective ways of thermo regulating in order to survive the extreme climate of the Sahara desert. Its huge, bat-like ears radiate body heat and help it keep cool in temperatures that can exceed 122°F (50°C), and its long, thick fur is insulation against the cold desert nights. Even the soles of its feet are hairy to provide protection from the searing hot sand.

Very cute!
Please can you add where you saw this lovely little guy (I'm guessing it was a zoo) in the notes. Thanks!
