  31. Next to kittehs, racoons and sea otters, Foxes are the cutest animals evahs! 🙂

  32. Noelegy says:

    Ruffian9, that’s funny: the first word that came to my mind when I viewed this cutie was “aerodynamic.” 🙂

  36. AliceBlue says:

    Can I really be the only person for whom this post causes missings of Theo? Fennec-Fennec-Fennec-FOX! (hope you’re doing well out there!)

  37. Wow, that looks like a gigantic wingless bat.

  38. Tigress says:

    It’s a very young Yoda I’m sure!

    “Meditating, I am. Leave, you must.”

  39. YAY! My favorite animal!!! I adore Fennecs! I got to work with one at the Knoxville Zoo. 🙂 So so so adorable!

  40. I want one so badly! However, keep in mind that all “rare or exotic” animals that are being sold are striped from their homes……… and though you feel like “well, I’m saving THIS one,” there are hundreds and thousands being ravished from their homeland all the time. Fennec foxes are SOOOO cute – and if one were in distress or lonely, I would take or buy him…… please check out this article about exotic pets before you act!

    My neighbor has a ring-tailed lemur (Doma) and got it from here…. and she takes damn good care of it…. but regardless, many people buy these sorts of animals and have no idea of how to care for them (ah, hum, Paris Hilton, you shrew!) all while encouraging the hostage that incurs in gaining exotic pets…..if no money is made, more animals will remain in their rightful habitats….. its SO sad!!!!!



    I hate PETA, I really do, I do not trust them….. but I trust videos. Even if these were edited, they are SAD, SAD, SAD………

    Anyone with me?

  41. Mod-in-Training says:

    [Okay, let’s all bow our heads and say our PETA prayer:

    “O dear PETA, thank you for ripping off the mask of cuteness from the grinning death’s-head that is human/animal interaction. O PETA, forgive us our trespasses, but we are a simple people. We don’t come to your web site and say ‘awwwwww, so please don’t visit ours and say ‘ewwwwww.’

    “And now, COngregation, repeat after me:


    And yes, Robyn, I know you are not PETA. But it’s not nice to hand out AA literature at a cocktail party.

    Everyone, please return to your mingling.
