Taronga Wildlife Park is celebrating the arrival of three Fennec Fox kits to parents Zinder and Kebilli, which are now on display for visitors to see.

Taronga Wildlife Park has welcomed new residents into its growing wildlife community with the birth of three Fennec Fox kits, the first litter to be born to a new breeding pair from Europe.

“All births are special for all of us here at the Wildlife Park, but what makes these Fennec Kits extra special is that they are the first offspring to a new breeding couple from Europe. This means that these kits are not related to any of the Fennec Foxes here in Australia,” explained keeper Tamara Bell.

These adorable kits are introducing a new bloodline into the Fennec Fox population in the Australasian region and are therefore playing a vital role in expanding the species’ genetics. They are also boosting the species’ population, which dropped to only six throughout Australia prior to 2010.

The kits, which are becoming adventurous, have started to come out of their nest box and explore some parts of their exhibit.
