Vulpes vulpes aegyptica
It's been many, many years since I've spotted a fox while hiking so I was overjoyed to see two yesterday! This one didn't seem to mind too much as we continued our hike past him as he sunbathed.Throat and belly dark, chin white, back of ears black - these are some of the features seen in the pics that distinguish this species from others. These foxes most likely scavenge from the food/rubbish that is brought from nearby hotels and restaurants to the camels that live at the mouth of the wadi.
