Is "fennec" Latin for "chubby"?
How many calories are in a bubble? Not trying to be rude, but Amir the fennec fox seems kind of chunky. Maybe he just appears pudgy because his face is so small. Then again, he's got the ears of an animal ten times his size, so who knows. Either way, it's a good thing the people who care for him at the Reid Park Zoo in Arizona have incorporated this bubble-chasing workout routine into his schedule, because he seems so harmless and docile it's hard to imagine him catching bubbles on his own in the wild.
