A small fox roughly the same size as a domestic cat native in the Middle East and Central Asia. It is a specialized omnivore, and unlike other fox species, it has a great affinity for fruits and plants. It is unique that it has adapted to feed on plants in its desert habitat. They live solitarily in rocky areas and can easily jump from rock to rock, making them a great climber.
Currently listed as Least Concern by the IUCN, conservation efforts for the species have included reducing habitat destruction, protecting suitable habitats, and regulating hunting in areas where there has been a decline.
