Opportunistic Foxes

Primarily a nocturnal animal the desert kit fox (Vulpes macrotis arsipus) can sometimes be spotted in the early hours of the day. Unfortunately due to human activity they can now commonly found in busy areas such as this construction site in the Mojave Desert of Southern California. Considerable effort is made to protect these animals in California where they hold a special status. Neighboring states, however, have not put any laws into effect to ensure their protection.
