Vulpes bengalensis

Golden Jackal

The Bengal Fox is endemic to the Indian subcontinent, from the foothills of the Himalayas, to the Sindh province of Pakistan and to north Bengal in India. The Bengal Fox lives in semi-arid, flat to undulating terrain, scrub and grassland habitats where it is easy to hunt and dig dens. It avoids dense forests, steep terrain, tall grasslands and true deserts. It occurs at low densities throughout its range, and populations can undergo major fluctuations due to prey availability.

The Bengal Fox has an elongated muzzle with small patches of black hair on the upper portion of the muzzle. They have large bushy tails with a black tip. They are grayish in color, paler underneath with dark ears. There extensive variation in coat color across populations.
