Caption

Cape fox (Vulpes chama) mother and young at their den entrance. Female cape foxes give birth to a litter of between 3 and 6 pups after a gestation period of around 50 days. The pups are weaned at 6-8 weeks and are able to hunt on their own at 4 months. They leave their mothers at 5 months. The cape fox is a small fox, measuring up to 60 centimetres, that inhabits the grasslands and savannahs of southern Africa. It is mostly nocturnal and lives alone or in pairs in dens. It feeds on small rodents, rabbits, reptiles, insects and a little plant matter. Photographed in the Kalahari Desert, South Africa.
