The newest residents at the Prospect Park Zoo are two super-tiny fennec foxes — the world's smallest species of fox.

Two male fennec foxes — the world’s smallest species of fox — have moved to the Prospect Park Zoo, the Wildlife Conservation Society announced this week. The little guys officially debuted at the zoo’s Hall of Animals on Monday, the WCS said. The foxes are the first of their kind at the Prospect Park Zoo. Previously, they lived at the Bronx Zoo.

On average, adult fennec foxes are between 9 and 16 inches long and weigh less than four pounds.

If you want to visit the two tiny foxes, Prospect Park Zoo is open from 10am - 5pm weekdays, 10am to 5:30pm on weekends.
