Jeff Wendorff's photography portfolio of Kit Fox from the family Canidae.

The Kit Fox (Vulpes macrotis) is a fox species of North America. Its range is primarily in the southwestern United States and northern and central Mexico. Some mammalogists classify it as conspecific with the swift fox, V. velox, but molecular systematics imply that the two species are distinct.

The Kit Fox is the smallest species of the Canidae family found in North America. It usually has a gray coat, with rusty tones, and a black tip to its tail. Unlike the Gray Fox, it has no stripe along the length of its tail. Its color ranges from yellowish to gray, and the back is usually darker than the majority of its coat; its belly and inner ears are usually lighter. It has distinct dark patches around the nose.
