Arabian Red Fox – Dhahran Hills

Whilst out birding recently I managed to get good and close views on a pair of Arabian Red Foxes. I see these animals occasionally but only ever seem to get good views when I am out with my girls. It seems amazing that virtually every time we look together we see them whilst when I look on my own I rarely do. The animals do not appear to be frightened of human activity and allow very close approach at times. I have also seen a few other foxes recently some with cubs. Every time I see the Arabian Red Foxes it amazes me how different they look to the Red Fox we get in England, which are bigger and much darker coloured than the ones here in Saudi Arabia.
