Small, cute, fluffy, these baby animals seem not meant for the harsh environment where they were born. Deserts, with their extreme temperatures and arid climate, are not the best place to raise children. But these animals are unusual: they all belong to species that have adapted to the difficult habitat in the desert.
Take a look at this adorable creature! The Fennec fox is the smallest canine in the world. The first thing that catches your attention is disproportionately large ears compared to the body. Fenech is endowed with excellent hearing. He can hear the rustle of his prey deep underground.
Kangaroo jumper horde.
This little pest lives in North America. The female can produce up to 15 babies per year. One of the biggest threats they face is the loss of their natural habitat due to climate change.
African wild dog.
These cute puppies are also known as “painted dogs” because of their fuzzy body markings. The animal is the largest canid in Africa. Unfortunately, due to human overpopulation, African wild dogs are an endangered species.
A small gazelle peering curiously into the camera lens. It seems that the ears and eyes are disproportionately large, but when the gazelle grows up, everything will look more harmonious. These babies will be under strict maternal supervision for 4 months.
Caracal (steppe lynx).
This cute cat is not a tame animal at all. With tufted ears, it looks like a lynx (often referred to as the Persian, Egyptian, and African lynx), but most scientists now consider this judgment to be erroneous. The caracal is more closely related to the African golden cat.
This is a spotted hyena, which is widely known for its laughter. Recent studies have shown that the IQ level of hyenas is the same as that of primates.
These amazing animal meerkats, which we have already talked about earlier, attract the attention of even the most indifferent people, as soon as they stand on their hind legs, and then fall asleep falling asleep.
Ocelots are native to South America, Central America, and Mexico. Ocelots were classified as endangered from 1972 to 1996. Starting in 2008, their status has been upgraded to Least Concern. One factor contributing to their low numbers may be their slow reproductive cycle (a mother can only give birth to 1 kitten).
