The Foxer

Warm-Up Foxer (What am I?)

I'm found in Africa and parts of the Middle East. I'm mentioned in the Bible. There's money in my manure. I'm a sun worshipper and singer. I'm looked up to in Zimbabwe's second city. I'm related to a much larger mammal. My arch-enemy bears the name of a distinguished French ornithologist.

Feature Foxer

Below is a list of ’25 Things That You Might Find in a Library′ (‘things’ is used here in its broadest possible sense). Entries have been stripped of vowels and had any inter-word spaces repositioned. For example, if ‘Philip Larkin’ was present, he might appear as…

PHLPLR KN

Persuasion would be…

PRSSN

The last four entries in the list – those marked with asterisks – are especially fiendish. Not only are they vowel-less, they have also been anagrammed.
