Corsac foxes use the burrows of other species to rest.
The Corsac fox is a medium sized canine, being slightly smaller than our native Irish red fox, they have longer legs and ears. The corsac coat is yellowish, with pale underparts and pale markings around the mouth, chin, and throat. During the winter their coat gets much thicker.
They are nocturnal animals and, unlike most fox species, Corsac foxes are social animals that form smalls packs.
They have excellent hearing, vision and smelling senses which they use to hunt. They are nomadic animals with no fixed territory, and like to move from place to place.
