Miami MetroZoo (June 1, 2008) Bat-eared Fox (Otocyon megalotis) (February 16, 2008) There are two populations of Bat-eared Foxes known - one from Ethiopia and southern Sudan to Tanzania; the other from southern Angola and Rhodesia to South Africa. Bat-eared foxes are found in arid grasslands and savannas, preferring areas where the grass is short. They are capable diggers and live in dens that are dug by the foxes themselves or those left by other animals such as aardvarks. Dens have multiple entrances and chambers and several meters of tunnels. A family may have several dens in its home range.
