In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site. In future posts we will take you along on our personal journey to Save the Animals through our KIDSLOVEANIMALS.com DVD series.

Fennec Fox

The fennec fox is the smallest member of the fox family and lives across the Sahara region of North Africa and in the northern deserts of Saudi Arabia. Its large ears radiate heat to keep it cool and also help it find prey.

I photographed this fox at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington, USA.

Just saw your comment on my blog, Paul. I guessed you'd been very busy, but it's good (as I said before) to see you back again. If you'd like to see more pics of a beautiful Africa, check out my daughter's blog. There's a link to it on my page called Mo&Craig's blog. She's posted some stunning images.
Take care Paul and don't work too hard.
