Bat-eared foxes settle in cautiously

Bat-eared fox

Our two one-year-old bat-eared foxes Attila and Ulti are slowly and warily getting used to their new home between the pony and red buffalo enclosures. The pair of brothers joined us from Magdeburg Zoo in April, and initially stayed inside their house while they settled in. Since they are both very shy, it will be some time before you will see them in their outside enclosure regularly or for longer periods. However, with a little luck and some sharp eyes, you should already be able to spot them behind a tuft of grass or resting in the sand.

The bat-eared fox is a species of wild dog from eastern and southern Africa. It uses its large ears to detect predators and to discharge excess body heat. Which is very useful in the hot weather we’re currently having, of course.
