He is known for his large ears and very small size. The fennec is a fox from the arid zones of the African continent, perfectly adapted to its environment.

Smaller than most cats, it measures between 18 and 22 cm in height and rarely exceeds 40 cm in length.

This Brut video tells you all about this desert fox.
