Darwin's Fox: The Endangered Canine Of South America

The Darwin's Fox

The Darwin’s Fox is a South American fox with short legs & a dark coat. These foxes’ rainforest homes are being destroyed, but the main threat to the Darwin’s Fox are feral dogs.

Feral dogs often kill Darwin’s Foxes, they can also pass diseases (such as rabies) to the Darwin’s Fox. There are so few of these magnificent creatures left in the wild that the ICUN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) has proclaimed it criticly endangered.

So visit your local Zoo or hop a plane to Chile because this may be your last chance to see the Darwin’s Fox face to face.
