This beautifully ugly creature is also known as the Tibetan Sand Fox (Vulpes ferrilata). They live on the high Tibetan Plateau where they feed on Plateau Pikas, which are superabundant in the area. If you look just to the right of the fox you can see a Plateau Pika peeping out. I took this one near Roueregai in Sichuan, China at an elevation of about 3500m above sea level. We saw several, but they generally kept a safe distance from humans. This one is heavily cropped but I thought it was worth sharing.
