The kit fox (Vulpes macrotis) is a small, slender species of fox that is native to North America. It is the smallest species of fox in the United States and is known for its long, pointed ears and large, black-tipped tail. Kit foxes are found in a variety of habitats, including deserts, grasslands, and woodlands, and they are well-adapted to living in arid environments. Kit foxes are carnivores and primarily feed on small mammals, such as rodents, rabbits, and birds. They are nocturnal animals, and they use their keen senses of hearing and smell to locate prey. Kit foxes are also skilled at digging and will often construct dens underground to use as shelter. Kit foxes are known for their social behavior and often live in small family groups. They are generally timid and reclusive animals, and they tend to avoid humans. However, they can sometimes be seen in urban areas, where they may come into conflict with humans if they prey on pets or damage gardens. Kit foxes are protected in some areas and are listed as a species of concern in others.
