Bat-eared Fox

Otocyon megalotis

The bat-eared fox is a member of the Canid (dog) family. It can be recognised by its large ears. It also has more teeth than most other mammals – between 46 and 50!



Size: 46 - 66cm
Weight: 3 - 5.3kg



Bat-eared foxes inhabit savannah and dry open plains in southern and eastern Africa. They generally live in small family groups, but are sometimes found in pairs.



They feed mainly on insects and scorpions and supplement their diet with small rodents, nestlings, eggs, lizards, fruit and bulbs.



Bat-eared foxes are pregnant for approximately 2 months, and between 2 and 5 young are born in a burrow.



The bat-eared fox is not believed to be endangered, however they are hunted for their skins and persecuted as pests in parts of their range.
