Bengal fox

Vulpes bengalensis


I was able to see this one because of the ruckus that a red wattled lapwing created (seen on the bottom left side of all pictures). Probably he was trying to get some of its eggs? Bengal Fox is a relatively small fox with an elongated muzzle, long pointed ears, and a bushy tail ca. 50 to 60% length of head and body. It is mainly crepuscular in its habits. During the heat of the day, they hide under vegetation or in subterranean dens that they dig. The dens are large and complex with multiple chambers and escape routes. They are sometimes seen basking at a vantage point around sunrise or sunset.


Seen near a lake at Madhav National Park.
