Zoo Portrait : Nabila, the fennec fox
About Nabila, the fennec fox:
Fennec foxes live in the Sahara Desert. Their paws are specially adapted for the desert climate, with thick fur on the pads to prevent them getting burned by the sand in the day, and to keep them warm in the freezing nights.
They are the smallest existing fox species, barely the size of a kitten, but they have the largest ears. One of the uses of their large ears is to detect and locate potential prey, even under the sand. They can rotate their ears to accurately locate where an insect or animal sound comes from.
About Yago, the artist:
Yago Partal (b. 1982, Barcelona) lives and works in Barcelona.
He creates his anthropomorphic images through a painstaking combination of photography, illustration and collage. His intention (in humanising animals) is to make us look again, to see them as "one of us" and not something to be exploited or endangered.
Yago has returned to university to study his passion, zoology. The sales from the Zoo Portraits have enabled him to support a number of wildlife charities over the years, and to work with children to educate the next generation about animal conservation.
Yago Partal is represented by Subject Matter Art, an online fine art gallery based in London. For any questions about his work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
