Exotic Animals You Can Legally Keep As Pets

Fennec Fox

When you look at the fennec fox, it is hard to tell if it is a member of the dog family or the cat family. It is a type of fox…the smallest member of the fox family, in fact…so it is a member of the dog family, even if it has some cat-like qualities.


Native to the Sahara Desert and other areas of Northern Africa, the fennec fox is a nocturnal creature that is an omnivore. It eats plants, as well as insects, rodents, eggs, and reptiles. They can live anywhere up to 14 years old, but unlike their bigger dog counterparts, they can only weigh from 2 to 3.5 pounds when fully grown. The cost for a fennec fox is in the several thousands of dollars just in case you were wondering.
