What Big Ears You Have! NY Zoo Debuts Adorable Foxes

Two adorable little foxes with remarkably big ears are making their public debut at New York's Prospect Park Zoo.

Fennec foxes usually weigh less than 4 pounds as adults. Their ears, up to 6 inches long, help regulate their body temperature.

The Wildlife Conservation Society says it's brought the two young males from the Bronx Zoo to Brooklyn.

The Smithsonian's National Zoo website says the fennec fox is the smallest fox in the world. It is common throughout the Sahara Desert and also lives in the deserts of Northern Africa and Northern Sinai.
