Hello hello, Sara here! Thanks for pouring in your entries to the exciting Children’s Day contests around wildlife. We found a beautiful way to enjoy nature, while still being locked in, isn’t it?
Thanks to fun facts by Kaadoo, makers of wildlife-based, table top games and sponsors of the Children’s Day contest prizes.
Here is Jeevasini Patnana from Bhubaneswar sharing a delightful poem on the Indian fox with us.
I have fur everywhere
I have a bushy tail,
Whatever I find to eat
I manage very well.
Bugs, rodents, birds or fruits
Who am I, can you guess?
Hello, I am the Indian fox
My colour is reddish peach,
I am neither giant nor tiny
I am a simple guy.
Indian fox Indian fox, Yay!
Found in the mountains and plains
Villages and urban lanes,
Night is my time to play
Indian fox, Indian fox. Yay!
Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy that wonderful poem? Now, as promised, some cool facts about the Indian Fox, also known as Bengal Fox. These cool facts have been curated by Kaadoo, in collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature. (WWF)
Cool Fact 1: The Indian fox’s favourite time of day is dawn or twilight.
Bengal foxes are predominantly crepuscular(active primarily during the twilight period) and nocturnal (being active during the night and sleeping during the day). While individuals may sometimes become active during cool periods of daytime, they typically spend warmer daylight hours under vegetation.
Cool Fact 2: The tail of the Indian Fox is around 50–60% of the length of the head and body.
The Indian Fox is more small and delicate in built, than the red fox. It can readily be recognized by its bushy, black-tipped tail, which is around 50–60% of the length of the head and body.
