BAT EARED FOX
Foxes are small-to-medium-sized canids. Foxes are found on every continent but the most common fox is the red fox. Foxes are not pack animals and usually just live with their families.They are very wary of humans are usually not kept as pets except in some countries. In many cultures, the fox appears in folklore as a symbol of cunning and trickery.
A male fox is called a “dog,” a female is called a “vixen” and a baby is called a “kit.”
The bat-eared fox diet consists mainly of insects such as ants and termites, in the rainy season and mice in the dry season.
Bat-eared foxes can use their large ears to locate beetle larvae buried underneath the ground.
