Few had heard about or seen the Tibetan fox until a few years back when photos of its blocky head and indifferent facial expressions became widespread memes on the Internet.

It is also very uncommon to see a Tibetan fox around residential communities as the fox rarely comes down from its elevated habitat on the vast Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in southwest China.

The Tibetan fox lives on steppes at an altitude ranging from 3,500 and 5,300 meters. The China native can also be found on the Ladakh plateau in India. As one of the few animals that have perfectly adapted to the arid environment on the plateaus, the Tibetan fox has thick greyish yellow fur and features a small but compact body.
