Tibetan Fox - High Altitude Canine
Tibetan foxes live in the barren slopes and stream beds of Asia at altitudes of 9,840–13,120 ft (3,000–4,000 m) in the Mustang District of Nepal, in Tibet and in the Tsinghai, Kansu, and Yunnan regions of China. They make their dens in the nooks and crannies of the boulders.
Tibetan foxes are fierce hunters of high plains rodents and pikas (a rabbit-hamster-like mammal).
They have rather square heads and large wise eyes. It almost looks like the heads are too big for the body but that is mostly the shape of the fur. They have thick fur for the cold weather and thick tails with white tips. They are middle-sized for canines being about 23–28 in (58–70 cm) long with tails about 16–19 in (40–48 cm) long.
Males and females usually form pairs and stay together throughout their lives. They also may hunt together. The mothers bear from 2-5 young a year which stay with the parents until they are about 8-10 months old.
