Vulpes rueppellii.jpg

Rüppel’s fox (Vulpes rueppellii) is one of the smallest and most elusive members of the Vulpes genus. Even though this fox is much smaller than the red fox (Vulpes vulpes), this elegant fox has a similar external form, but with ears that are larger than its head. The fur of Rüppel’s fox varies in colour from region to region, but is usually light reddish-grey with a series of dark patches leading from the eyes to the nose, and a white tipped tail. The thin legs and soft, fur-covered foot pads suggest that, unlike some other foxes, Rüppel’s fox does not burrow.
