Fennec Fox, Vulpes zerda, at Binghamton Zoo

There are two at Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park. Playful and curious, they are the smallest of all canids. They live  in the Sahara Desert and the Arabian Peninsula, and are perfectly adapted to life in a hot and dry place. Those ears are air conditioners. 

We find a fennec fox in Antoine de Saint Exupery's The Little Prince
