These nocturnal hunters can dig a burrow so rapidly, they appear to sink into the sand.

Fennec foxes’ large distinct ears help them stay cool in the desert heat and listen for prey underground. Adapted to desert life, their sandy coat reflects sunlight during the day and keeps them warm at night when they are most active.
