A charming yet elusive canid species found primarily in the Indian subcontinent. Unlike its wild and ferocious cousins, the Bengal fox prefers to maintain a low profile and is quite skilled at avoiding human contact. These foxes are relatively small, measuring up to 60 cm (24 inches) in length, and weigh between 2-4 kg (4-9 pounds). With their slender build and bushy tails, they are quite agile and can run at an impressive speed of up to 42 km/h (26 mph).
One of the most remarkable features of the Bengal fox is its adaptable nature. They have the ability to survive in a wide range of habitats, from open grasslands to dense forests. They are also known to be monogamous, with both parents taking an active role in raising their young.
