The Tibetan Sand Fox was completed on 9.23.2014. Recently, I've started to draw more and more less commonly encountered animals. Some of the more exotic animals comes from the more remote areas of Asia, not surprisingly. I had seen a documentary many years ago that featured the Tibetan Sand Fox, although at the time I wasn't considering drawing one. But with a couple of different collages needing an animal like this, I studied several reference photos and came up with the pose, including a straight up shot of the animal looking at the viewer.
The Tibetan Sand Fox (sometimes called simply the Tibetan Fox or Sand Fox.) These canids are small and compact. They have coats of very dense fur, with an anvil shaped head and very narrow muzzles. The sand fox is found primarily in semi-arid to arid grasslands, well away from humans or from heavy vegetation cover. The Tibetan sand fox is restricted to the Tibetan Plateau in western China and the Ladakh plateau in Northern Pakistan. They primarily feed on pikas, followed by rodents, marmots, woolly hares and lizards, but they will also scavenge from dead animals and livestock. The Sand Fox is found across Tibet and in parts of the China. Outside of China, it can be found in northern Bhutan, and in the northernmost border regions of Nepal and India, north of the Himalayas. There are no recognized subspecies.
