Cincinnati Welcomes Three Wee Fox Kits
May 02, 2012
In the wild, Bat-eared Foxes emerge from their den at dusk to prowl for prey. They tend to hang out near herds of Zebra, Buffalo, and other large mammals that attract insects. Listening intently with its five-inch long ears, the Fox can detect a termite chewing grass or a beetle larva burrowing underground. Three Bat-eared Fox pups (2 females and 1 male) were born April 9 at Cincinnati Zoo to proud parents Runt and Pombre.
