Arabian Red Fox

The Arabian red fox (Vulpes vulpes arabica) is a subspecies of the red fox native to Arabia. The Arabian red fox is similar to the common red fox. However, it is more adapted to desert life than its parent species. As they lack the long dense fur of the European fox they appear to have thin bodies and long legs, but proportionally they are the same, with the exception of their ears. These are larger and have thousands of tiny blood vessels that help the fox to maintain its body temperature. Reddish to sandy-brown, their color has adapted to the environment in which they are living. The Arabian red fox also has fur between its toes, to prevent burning of the feet.
