The Fennec Fox is the Most Adorable Animal in the World

Pack up your bags and sound the alarms because, by golly, I think we've done it. We've found the most adorable animal in the world! Of course, we can't take all the credit. Photographer In Cherl Kim has been shooting these sweet creatures for years at Everland Resort, South Korea's largest theme park. In fact, he has a whole folder dedicated to the photogenic fox on Flickr. As Kim states, “Fennec fox is [the] most poplar animal in my photostream.”

The fennec fox or fennec is a small nocturnal animal found in the Sahara of North Africa. (Remember this one with swag?) It's known for its unusually large ears which it uses to release heat and keep cool (since it's hot in the desert). Though smallest out of all the foxes in the world, its ears are the largest relative to body size.

Because they're so adorable, in some parts of the world, they're considered an exotic pet. Take a look at Kim's photos and you'll understand why.
