There are thousands of different animal species on the earth today, and we can't ignore the really cute ones that easily attract us. Cats and dogs are common cute animals that we see around, but there are even more cute animals that you probably aren't aware of yet. When you see animal pictures, you first consider its looks and then the possibility for it to harm you. Although cuteness doesn't always mean harmlessness; you'd be surprised to know that some adorable animals could harm you.
Some cute animals could be flurry or spiny or covered with feathers, but we must admit that they get our attention with how really cute they are.

Fennec Foxes are exotic animals that look like a mix breed of a cat and a dog and not a fox as its name implies. And with cats and dogs being really cute animals, an appearance with a mix of both will certainly yield a really cute animal like the fennec fox. They have large ears which help to keep them cool in a desert environment; they also have a small body and large eyes. Furthermore, they are extremely playful and family friendly.
