These Fennec Foxes Were Raised In Captivity. Watching Them Play Is Adorable.
Fennec foxes are beautiful creatures, and valued in some countries as exotic pets. In the wild, however, they are elusive, making this video very uncommon and unusual.
These fennec fox kits (that’s what their young are called) were all raised in captivity, but they retain the habits many fennec foxes have in the wild. And out in the deserts, these nocturnal creatures love to dig holes, to make dens or perhaps just temporary little hiding places.
Above all else, however, these foxes love to play, and it’s adorable to watch them playing like this. Fennec foxes have never been truly domesticated, but can live comfortably in domestic environments nonetheless. Whether these foxes are free in the wild or stay in captivity for life, they can have happy, fulfilling lives.
