Travel theme: a fennec in Mauritania

This week, Ailsa‘s photo challenge theme is Close.

Fennecs are little wild foxes that live in the Sahara desert; they are not the most approachable animals, and the closest I could come to one was in a hostel in Nouakchott, the Mauritanian capital.

Half domesticated, the fennec was living there, having its own life and doing its best to avoid contact with guests.

One day the cute little animal was chilling in the shade under a chair; I tiptoed to come closer and managed to get a nice photo of it!
