Well, the main reason they aren't given all that much respect is because they are considered a pest to farmers, as they kill chickens and other things small enough for them to kill. Along with pet owners who's pets have been killed by foxes.
They are pretty beautiful though.

I do agree with you, Redsky, they surely are farm-animal pests.
Though, they are such beautiful animals.

Where I live, if you go a bit deep in the forest, you can see a few foxes.
I've seen quite a few of them
Also; thank you for sharing this information with us, it's quite interesting! :3

And thank you everyone for the information!

Not all Foxes are omnivores, they can also be scavengers or meat eaters.

Thanks for this great information!
I absolutely love foxes! Such beautiful creatures. I admire their stealth and cunningness, not mention their beautiful appearance. I really enjoy watching foxes, especially the fact that we have many in our area. We often see them running across the road or somewhere in a field. My favorite fox would have to be the Arctic Fox.
I can't say that farmers can agree xD
Thanks again!

I've seen a fox once, in the supposed 'wild', but it was pretty much spoiled. Kept waiting at a path for people to come along and feed him... I bet I could have petted it if I wanted to, but I didn't.

Anyway, interesting topic here, I don't know all too much about foxes.

Tibetan Sand Fox

Post by paperpaws » Sun Apr 01, 2012 1:27 pm

So I just stumbled across these guys and I have to admit they have a hilarious face. They look so unamused.

Nevertheless...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tibetan_sand_fox wrote:The Tibetan sand fox (Vulpes ferrilata) is a species of true fox endemic to the high Tibetan Plateau in Nepal, China, Sikkim, and Bhutan, up to altitudes of about 5300 m. It is classed as Least Concern for extinction by the IUCN, on account of its widespread range in the Tibetan Plateau's steppes and semi-deserts.
These guys are pretty interesting... I love how foxes always look so diverse. Just compare this 'sand fox' to the other 'sand fox' (Rüppell's fox) and you'll already find a big difference in physical appearance.

Wow, you are quite right Silverness they do have an unamused looking expression and I must admit the face did actually make me laugh! I've never heard of this specific species of fox before and so when I looked them up I wasn't expecting to see that it had such a roundish looking face and how pudgy they look!

While reading I found that they are truly an interesting species indeed! So thanks for introducing a new fox species to me Silverness!

Ha, it's the eyes that are so comical. The eyes are so closed, it's as if they're "not humored" by anything. I just did a little research on these guys, and found a video of one hunting a rabbit. I can't share it here, but if you look up Tibetan Fox videos, I'm sure you'll find it. It was fasinating how they stalked their pray. Their body barely move when they moved forward, and they remained low enough to the ground that they blended in with the horizon. Thanks for sharing this Silverness, I actually had never even heard of these little guys heretofore. c:

These foxes are quite unique indeed. Made me laugh a bit when I came across the pictures. Their eyes are quite widely spread, and it seems their tiny, frowning mouth gives them that "unamused" appearance. I have never known the name of these little guys, but I have seen a documentary where one was brought up. Even then, I quite enjoyed watching them hunt. As failwolf said, their bodies definitely don't move all that much. Thanks for sharing a bit more information on them Silverness. ^^ When you think about it, there are quite a few different fox species, and the Tibetan Sand Fox shows the more interesting side of the breed. c:

Wow thanks for sharing this Silverness! I believe I've watched a documentary of some sort about these guys ,and I think it stated that their odd, square-shaped heads were actually a sort of camouflauge mechanism. :mrgreen:

I saw two foxes the other day just outside my window in the early morning; the first time I've seen foxes for a long time now (so it was exciting). I was confused at first as all I could hear was really loud screeching (at first I thought it might have been some small dog), but when I looked out of the window they popped out from the side; one fox was chasing the other. I managed to get a really brief video of one of the foxes after it had chased the other off, though I would have liked to have captured the whole "chasing" scene as at the time it was interesting to watch.
