FOXY LADIES SETTLE IN AT NEW HOME
SAY hello to one of Queensland’s cutest new arrivals.
Three-year-old fennec foxes Kesi (pictured) and Zahra have spent the past two weeks settling into their new enclosure at WildlifeHQ on the Sunshine Coast, having moved from their former home in Perth.
In the wild, fennec foxes are typically found in northern Africa.
The two female foxes are nocturnal, but visitors at Wildlife HQ Zoo on the Sunshine Coast will still be able to see the creatures during visiting hours, thanks to a glass viewing window into their den.
Wildlife HQ zookeeper Talia Maxwell said they were hoping the pair would become more comfortable with the public over time.
“They are generally not too highmaintenance, but we are trying to spend some time getting them settled into their new environment,” Ms Maxwell said. “They are quite shy at the moment.” She said they got a daily diet of vegetables, insects and a mouse or two.
