Kessingland wildlife park celebrates big-eared fox cub arrivals
My what big ears you have got!
This photograph shows how a north Suffolk wildlife park Africa Alive is celebrating three new cute additions- a litter of Fennec fox cubs.
The cubs are the first litter of their kind born at the park at Kessingland, near Lowestoft, and since their arrival in June they have been eagerly exploring their habitat.
As the three playful cubs wander around they are always under the caring watch of their two-year-old mother Kelaa and father Yaris.
None of the cubs have names yet as their gender is yet to be determined by staff.
