Remember these bright inquisitive eyes staring into the camera. This is the first time Vulpes Corsac has locked eyes with the camera. This small carnivore is a rare mammal of Iran and until May when this picture was taken near Gonbad Kavus, there was no picture of it available.
Corsac Fox is smaller than the common fox. Besides the petite body and stretched eyes, what sets it apart from other foxes is cinnamon patches behind its ears, its black muzzle and short tail.
