WIL Photo of the Week – Desert Sunrise

A picture is worth a thousand words … wonder what this little desert kit fox has to say about the monsoonal summer in California’s Colorado Desert? More information about the desert kit fox project can be found by following the link.

This radio collared desert kit fox (Vulpes macrotis) is part of an ongoing disease monitoring effort in eastern Riverside County. Remote cameras are placed at kit fox dens and used to capture still images of its inhabitants. This is a useful, non-invasive tool biologists can use to monitor the health and physical condition of these crepuscular animals. Photo courtesy of David Elms from Region 6 DFG office.
