A portret of a Corsac Fox..

The Corsac fox is a long legged, reddish gray fox with large ears and a short, pointy face. Its coat is grayish-red with silver undertones, and the under parts are white with yellow undertones. Its chin is also white. They have small teeth compared to other foxes. The Corsac Fox is slightly smaller than the red fox, about 50-60 cm, and as tall as an average sized dog.

Corsac foxes like to live in burrows on steppes and semi-deserts, and are originally from the steppes of Mongolia. You would not find them in areas that are used for agriculture. They are omnivorous so they eat small animals, birds, reptiles, insects and plants. They have some competition in getting their food, but they're good hunters.

The corsac fox is found throughout the southeast area of the former USSR and a large area of central Asia. They are also found in Turkestan, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Transbaikalia, and northern Manchuria

Hi, Olger. This is a nice pic. I like the intensity of the look in his eyes - so typical of predators (even small ones). Very good colours and detail.

Way better than your first post as in that post the blurred fox distracted me. This photo is very good. Great details, nice soft furcoat. Good composition and POV. TFS
