fox gets its name from its rather large ears. They can
be up to 5 inches long. It is thought that the large
ears which are characteristic of many desert animals
help dissipate heat. Another interesting characteristic
of this fox is their unusual teeth for a canid. They
have extra molars, totaling up to 50 teeth all together.
This helps them to grind the hard casing of insects
which makes up their primary diet.
