I found a fennec!
Thanks to a story I read over and over again as a child (I cannot remember the title), I've always wanted to see a fennec - the big eared, amazingly adaptable desert fox of northern Africa. They are nocturnal, shy, and almost mythical. But while camping in the White Desert outside of Frafra Oasis, I took a morning stroll over the surrounding mounds of stone, and found this sleepy, surprisingly calm little fellow. I'll never forget sitting down and quietly watching him as he noticed me - but didn't panic - and we shared some glorious moments being warmed by the rising sun.
