1000 Francs Niger 2013 Fennec Fox, Silver Coin with Jade Stone

The Fennec fox or fennec (Vulpes zerda) is a small nocturnal fox found in the Sahara  of North Africa. Its most distinctive feature is its unusually large ears, which  serve to dissipate heat. Its name comes from the Arabic word فنك (fanak), which means fox, and the species name zerda comes from the Greek word  xeros which means dry, referring to the fox's habitat. The fennec is the  smallest species of canid in the world. Its coat, ears, and kidney functions  have adapted to high-temperature, low-water, and desert environments. In  addition, its hearing is sensitive enough to hear prey moving underground. It  mainly eats insects, small mammals, and birds.
