Vulpes Rueppellii

Loading...

Rüppell's fox ( Vulpes rueppellii ), also spelled Rueppell's fox , is a species of fox living in North Africa, the Middle East, and southwestern Asia. [1] It is named after the German naturalist Eduard Rüppell . This fox is also called the sand fox , but this terminology is confusing because the corsac fox ( V. corsac ) and the Tibetan sand fox ( V. ferrilata ) are also known as "sand foxes".
