Fennec foxes

From British daily The Morning Star:

Rare fennec foxes bred in Britain

Animals: A zoo has celebrated the births of three rare fennec foxes – the only surviving cubs to be born in Britain since 2008.

It is the first time the foxes have been successfully bred at Drusillas Park and they are also believed to be the first litter born in Europe this year.

The high mortality rate of newborns within the species is thought to be due to the sensitivity of the parents to any disturbance.

Again, fennecs born in the same zoo: here.
