One of the rarest fox species in the world, native to the desert and semi-desert regions of northern Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and southwestern Asia. They can be distinguished from other foxes by their small size and sandy-brown coloration. Its distinctive features include a long muzzle, large pointed ears, and yellowish-brown eyes. They are well-adapted to desert habitats and can endure long periods of drought and extreme temperatures.
This species has been classified as Least Concern due to its wide distribution throughout its range, but they are threatened by hunting and the use of poisons and are on the brink of extinction in Israel due to competition with the Red Fox.
