Rüppell's fox is a fox species named after Eduard Rüppell, a German naturalist. Rüppell's foxes live throughout North Africa, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia.

Rüppell's foxes have fur on their foot pads, which helps them distribute their weight and travel quickly on sand; it also protects their feet from being burned by hot sand. Rüppell's foxes, like other desert-dwelling foxes, have big ears that help keep them cool. They are either crepuscular or nocturnal creatures. During the day, they hide in dens excavated under rocks or trees. Outside of the breeding season, their burrows are small and can only accommodate one adult fox, and the animal normally switches dens every five days or so. Breeding dens are larger and house a pair of adults and their kits. Breeding adults are monogamous and will mate for life.

During courting, these creatures communicate with each other using a series of brief barks, but they can also generate hisses, trills, and shrill whistles. They have also been observed to wag their tails in the manner of domestic dogs. Rüppell's foxes are omnivorous. They eat beetles, insects, small animals, lizards, and birds. Plants consumed include grasses and desert plants, as well as fruits like dates. They have also been observed to scavenge human waste.
