What do fennec foxes eat?
Fennex foxes are omnivores. These omnivorous animals primarily eat insects and small rodents, as well as birds and their eggs. They also eat desert plants, which is their primary source of water. Fennec foxes will drink water when it’s available, but they don’t need to. Fennecs can live months or even YEARS without drinking water, living only on the water they get from the plants they eat. These plants consist of berries and other fruits, grasses, and some types of roots. When domesticated, they usually eat a diet consisting of meaty dog and cat foods, raw meat, mealworms, and insects.
