What are the fennec fox's predators?

fennec fox main predators are caracals and the various African varieties of eagle owls. Others include jackals and saluki (a grey hound type of thing) and striped hyenas. But, the fennec fox is very hard to capture and it is captured for its fur by the human trade market people. The meat of the fox is not however eaten because it is said to be fowl smelling.

I read off of animaldiversity.com- by typing in "Fennec Fox" (obviously) and it says that they aren't really sure about what eats Fennec foxes, and I think that it is a just any larger carnivorous species that lives in their area.

How does the fennec fox survive in the desert?

Ready? Here comes the paragraph from the fox nerd.

Fennecs have larger ears, not only to hear better, but to cool off. Blood passes close to the skin and cools it down. It has fur on its paws to keep from sliding on sand. It's tongue curls when it pants to save liquid (saliva). It eats many things, including fruit, bugs, and small animals. It can go years without drinking, though will drink if water is available. They have a musk gland at the tip of their tail, which is used when excited or scared. It lives in groups of up to ten, though does not hunt with them. It can dig very fast, up to twenty feet a day. Some claim it 'dissapears' in the sand.

What adaptations does a fennec fox have?

The fennec fox is one of the most sociable of the foxes and often lives in small groups of 10-15 individuals. Typically these groups are extended family. The young stay with their parents for a long time and then may make their own dens nearby. The fennecs prefer to be out at dawn, dusk and night, making them crepuscular and nocturnal. The huge ears and light colored fur effectively radiate excess body heat, while the small, pointed nose limits the amount of amount loss. Their fur also gives them excellent camouflage in the sand. The fennec is active, agile and very fast over short distances. They can jump about two feet straight up from a standing position and can make a horizontal leap of four feet.
They have large ears so they can hear prey from far away, close up, and even underground.
