Desert Fox

Vulpes vulpes pusilla

Description:

Savouring the catch of the day !

Habitat:

Wild Ass Sanctuary encompasses an area of 4953.71 sq. km. of the Little Rann of Kutch, India. It's unique habitat comprises of saline mudflats, marshes, scrub-land and large seasonal wetlands. In the monsoon, the sanctuary is filled with seasonal brackish water and once it dries up, the land transforms into a vast span of cracked land. It is a haven for avian diversity ranging from waders to raptors and mammals like the endangered Indian Wild Ass (Equus hemionus khur), Desert fox, Striped Hyena and Indian Wolf.

Notes:

Spotted this Desert fox scanning the scrub-land and digging for food. Eventually it was successful in recovering something to munch on.

Vipul, this is a wonderful spotting but could you please write something about the kind of place where you spotted this fox - under "habitat" ( I notice it's near a Sanctuary) . Also, a good reference link would be nice. Thanks.
