Two adorable little foxes with remarkably big ears are making their public debut at the Prospect Park Zoo just in time for Chol Hamoed.

Fennec foxes usually weigh less than four pounds as adults. Their ears, up to six inches long, help regulate their body temperature.

The Wildlife Conservation Society says it’s brought the two young males from the Bronx Zoo to Brooklyn.

The fennec fox is the smallest fox in the world. It is common throughout the Sahara Desert and also lives in the deserts of Northern Africa and Northern Sinai.
