Fennec Fox


It’s Monday. But that’s OK, because the fennec fox is here to make you forget about all your troubles. It’s so cute I can’t even stand it. Look at it. Look at it. I’d trade one for my kid, if I had a kid. OK, so maybe I shouldn’t have kids.
Anyway, underneath all the cuteness, the fennec fox is actually a remarkable little desert specialist. So check out this week’s episode of Absurd Creatures to learn more!
And I’m happy to hear from you with suggestions on what to cover next. If it’s weird and we can find footage of it, it’s fair game. You can get me at matthew_simon@wired.com or on Twitter at @mrMattSimon. And check out the Absurd Creature of the Week column right here.
