The Tibetan fox is endemic to the Tibetan plateau in Nepal | Animal World



The Tibetan fox (two-part nomenclature: Vulpes ferrilata) is a mammal of the Dog family, Carnivore. This species was described by Hodgson in 1842.

The Tibetan fox is endemic to the Tibetan plateau in Nepal, China, Sikkim and Bhutan, reaching a height of about 5,300 m. It is classified as the least concerned species by IUCN, due to its wide range in the steppes of the Tibetan and semi-desert highlands.

They mainly hunt pika, followed by rodents, marmots, wool rabbits and lizards. They also feed on carcasses of Tibetan antelope, musk deer, Himalayan wild sheep and human pets.
