A small and sly creature that’s anything but average. Despite their diminutive size, this fox is a skilled hunter and has been known to take down prey much larger than itself. With their unique black and white fur, they look like they’re ready for a formal event but don’t be fooled – they’re just as comfortable raiding garbage cans for their next meal.
Its nocturnal habits and tendency to avoid humans make it a difficult animal to spot in the wild. However, its unique vocalizations, including a distinctive bark and growl, can often be heard echoing through the African savannah. The Cape Fox’s incredible hunting abilities and elusive nature make it a fascinating and mysterious creature that is truly worth seeking out.
