The Bat-Eared Fox has good hearing and huge ears measuring
up to 13 cm in length. It is a small harmless animal which
feeds on insects, mice and wild fruit. They are partly nocturnal,
and will take cover on a hot day.
The bonding of these animals is strong, and it is possible
for a pair to bond for a lifetime. The offspring (usually
3 to 5 young) are born in a burrow.
They are neither true foxes nor true jackals, and have a
habit of twisting and dodging when being pursued, in order
to confuse and shake off their pursuer.
