Manic Monday - Bat

MM Graphic by Janna
This Week's Theme: Bat
MM Headquarters ~ Previous MMs

Bat-eared Fox
  • Lives in the African Savannah.
  • Named after it's huge ears.
  • Their teeth are much smaller than other "dogs".
  • They have small teeth because they eat only insects.
  • Bat-eared Foxes visit termite hills, follow locust swarms or stay close to herds of zebras or antelopes in order to feed on the insects landing on their excrements.
  • They are nocturnal animals that live in small groups.
  • A couple will live in a den and raise their pups together.
  • Mated pairs are very social and monogamous. It is unknown if they are mated for life, though.

You know, if I was a termite and saw something looking at ME like that, I'd make termite poo in my little termite undies.

What an odd looking creature...did you know about this fox before today? Thanks for the great post!

Lee said...

The teeth thing got me thinking...just how small are their teeth. If you tried to pet one, would he change his diet and eat your hand? Because, they do look like a strange little dog, and I always wonder what an animals fur feels like...wonder if there are any of these at the zoo? hmmmmmmm
