If he flaps a little...there will be lift off.

DanaC 05-16-2008 06:21 AM

Ohhhh.....O..."Warning!, Cute Overload!" Look at his ickle nose!....I mean.....just look at that. And them cute little black whiskers.....Ohhhh He's sooooo cute!

sweetwater 05-16-2008 06:27 AM

Fennecs are so dang adorable, even as adults. From the expression of its face I think it can hear all the ooooh-ing and aaaah-ing, too.

Flint 05-16-2008 08:24 AM

That's straight-up Anime cute.

LabRat 05-16-2008 09:04 AM

That's like, the Dolly Parton of foxes.

Cloud 05-16-2008 09:08 AM

Baby.Animals.R.Cute.

and, hey! Wikipedia says they're the only type of foxes that can be kept as pets. Tho' they can't be housebroken, so I'm not sure about that . . .

Shawnee123 05-16-2008 10:28 AM

I want to scratch his widdle head until he snoozes in my arms.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww!

SJ 05-16-2008 10:50 AM

Seriously cute.... but am I missing something.... there appears to be no recipe yet!

xoxoxoBruce 05-16-2008 10:57 AM

We were hoping you had one.
Welcome to the Cellar, SJ. :D

Shot at Woodland Park Zoo recently.

HEY! Stop hitting! PHOTOgraphed, yeesh. Not enough there for a decent tapas anyway....

Trilby 05-16-2008 12:34 PM

Those long ears are adorable!

We think he's cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!

Flint 05-16-2008 01:39 PM

But, what is he thinking?

BigV 05-16-2008 01:46 PM

"Turn that damn music down!"

Flint 05-16-2008 01:52 PM

No kidding.
If you have one of these guys as a pet, please run a low-pass filter on your stereo.

LOL Fennecs!

Trilby 05-16-2008 03:59 PM

ok, Flinty, I'll bite. He's thinking, as all adorable creatures do, "I can get away with murder!!!!, and then he laughs to himself and plots your demise. Probably through poison.

Nothing that a little Fennec Fricassee won't cure.

monster 05-16-2008 04:27 PM

Sage and mushroon stuffed Fennec ears with a goat cheese sauce

Cloud 05-16-2008 05:06 PM

I don't think ears would be very tasty. all that cartilage.

Tree Fae 05-16-2008 07:41 PM

Ohhh...they live for a really long time huh?

Nikolai 05-17-2008 07:30 AM

Well he may taste really nice, but Id prefer a Fennec Fox jacket, or perhaps a pimp hat with ears :D

Spud, beat me to it on the Yoda front.
But, Gremlins anyone?

Lovely, cute picture, but a little poorly timed for me.
One of my (big eared) cats has been missing for 48 hours. Broken-hearted. I'll be avoiding Friday IoTDs for a while.

monster 05-17-2008 10:46 AM

aaw Sundae! Have you checked the office?

tombstone 05-17-2008 11:02 AM

Tombstone
 
Anybody read the 1943 book "Mischief in Fez"? A good djinn comes to a little boy in the shape of a fennec (you can tell by the slit in one of the fennec's ears) to save him and his widower father from an unfortunate marriage to an evil djinn. It was still a fairly new book (sigh) when I read it, but made an impression that has lasted more than half a century, and I love that picture! Brings that wonderful book vividly back. (Only copy I can find on the internet is at Amazon for about $95.00!)

xoxoxoBruce 05-17-2008 11:10 AM

Welcome to the Cellar, tombstone. :D
Glad we could spark some good memories.

Gravdigr 05-17-2008 03:42 PM

Wow, what contrast-Post #29 with "1 post" (welcome tombstone BTW) and Post #30 with "25,668 posts".

xoxoxoBruce 05-17-2008 07:22 PM

But you see, it doesn't make any difference, every member gets to put their :2cents: in.

The house broken might be true. I had a small red fox as a kid . It would follow on a lease?? SP Mind went blank

SPUCK 05-18-2008 03:29 AM

I think he's got HiDef!

Scriveyn 05-18-2008 03:54 AM

Sorry, you're wrong. Have you never had steamed artichoke? The older larger outer leaves have a strong, inedible inner structure, but you just scrape all the steamed flesh from the core with your teeth. These are just a bit bigger, that's all. Try to get some young ones, they are more tender...
