A female fox basking in the sunshine
Desert foxes can be found wandering in the barren Rann of Kutch, close to where they build their dens. Like a cat’s, the fox’s thick tail aids its balance, but it has other uses as well. A fox uses its tail as a warm cover in cold weather and as a signal flag to communicate with other foxes.They can be differentiated from other fox species by their white tail-tip. Beady eyes and a small snout give them an endearing, almost adorable look.
