Kessingland: Park celebrates fox cubs’ birth

STAFF at Africa Alive are celebrating three cute new additions – a litter of Fennec fox cubs.

The cubs are the first litter of their kind born at the wildlife park at Kessingland, and since their arrival in June they have been eagerly exploring their habitat.

As the three playful cubs wander around they are always under the caring watch of their two-year-old mother Kelaa and father Yaris. Fennec foxes are found throughout the Sahara desert in north Africa and are nocturnal.

Their large ears are used to find prey and to help them cool down in the searing desert heat.
