The Pale Fox is a type of canid Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game and Kemono Friends Pavilion.

Appearance

Pale Fox's old design has long straight hair that reaches at least below the shoulder blades with part of it cut to about ears-length and a fringe that reaches the eyebrows. She carries a fur ruff around her neck accompagnied by a white sweater tied around her shoulders. She wears full-length tights of the same color as her beige coat with white fur cuffs and gloves, a black short plaid skirt, and white loafers. Like the real animal, she has the ears and tail of the Pale Fox.

The new design keep the hairstyle but changed the hair's color which is completely orange, ears included. She now wears a sports a tennis inspired outfit with a white sleeveless top trimmed in orange and matching orange tennis skirt. She also wears two beige sweatbands on her wrists that match the sweater tied around her shoulders. She has a very short orange circular skirt with pressed-in ridges. Unlike the old design, her tail is longer and thinner.

In Real Life

Pale Fox (Vulpes pallida)

The pale fox (Vulpes pallida) is one of the least known of all fox species, maybe in part due to its pale, sandy coat that blends in with its desert habitat, and its nocturnal behaviour. The pale fox has an elongated, low body, relatively short legs and a narrow muzzle. Its ears are long and rounded at the tip. Its tail is bushy and is at least half as long as its body, and often fully as long. The tip of its tail is black.

Typically inhabiting very dry sandy and stony sub-Saharan desert and semi-desert areas, but extending to some extent southwards into moister Guinean savannas. Therefore, they have a very extensive distribution within an unstable and fluctuating ecological band lying between true desert and the Guinean savannas. May occur near human habitation and cultivated fields where food is more readily available than in natural habitats.

Pale foxes primarily feed on fruits, berries and vegetable matter, and they possess well-developed molars suited to this largely herbivorous diet. However, they also sometimes catch and eat small animals such as rodents, lizards and invertebrates. From their diet, pale foxes obtain sufficient moisture to enable them to survive for the long, dry, hot seasons of their desert habita

They dig extensive dens, descending two to three metres and extending up to 15 metres, with the inner chambers lined with dry vegetation. These burrows allow the foxes to escape the heat of the day until dusk when they surface to search for food.

Although the abundance of the pale fox is unknown, it seems to be a common species throughout its wide range. No major threats are known, although they may be persecuted locally since they are known to kill domestic fowl.

  • This is the least known of all the canids, and studies on its distribution, status and ecological requirements are needed.
