A.O.T.D. (Animal of the Day) Fennec Fox

Just a quick sketch today. I'd like to say I'm greatly exaggerating the size of this fox's ears in relation to its body, but I'm not. This is the Fennec fox which is found primarily in the deserts of North Africa and parts of the Middle East. Their huge ears radiate heat and keep them cool during the day. They also have long, thick fur that keeps them warm at night and protects them from the daytime sun. They even have hairy feet that protects them from the scorching sand.
