Footprints in the desert

The ears, large and wide, that manage to save this Fennec from the sweltering weather. This is the smallest fox in the world, here immortalised while walking in the perfect dunes of the Tunisian desert, that is comfortably camouflaged despite the hostile climate of this particular geographical area. The ears of the Fennec radiate body heat and contribute in maintaining the body temperature low for a refreshing feeling, meanwhile the long and thick fur protects the animal from the rigid temperatures at nighttime.
