The pen must be designed to prevent your fennec from digging under or climbing over the walls, both of which these are quite good at doing.

Males defend females before and during birth, and will provide food to the female until the pups are about 4 weeks old.
A fennec fox will live 11-14 years in captivity so do educate yourself about this species before buying one.
However, accidents will occur, particularly outside of the enclosure when they are allowed out.

    Habitat of the Fennec Fox. Fennec foxes live in the deserts of northern Africa. They dig a den in the sand to live and raise pups in, and this den can be either sheltered by vegetation or in the open. Foxes tend to prefer dens in areas with established vegetation and root systems, as their dens can be as nearly 400 ft. long in stable soil.

    The fennec fox is the smallest of all the world's foxes, weighing only 2.2 pounds (1 kilogram). It has enormous ears, measuring 6 inches (15 centimeters), which it appears to have borrowed from a much bigger relative. Fennec foxes are sometimes called desert foxes because they live in desert zones of North Africa and the Sinai and Arabian peninsulas. They are nocturnal and avoid the daytime.

    GUARANTEE. Raising quality Fennec Fox is our hobby, but one that we take very seriously. Our kits are also our companions, they are part of the family. We know the personalities of each of our kit and that matters because those are the traits that are passed down to their litters. All of our foxes have great temperaments.
