Found in western grasslands of Colorado, New Mexico and Texas, the swift fox is also found in Saskatchewan and Alberta in Canada.
Commonly mistaken as the kit fox, the swift fox is smaller and has a narrower snout.
They heavily depend on their dens throughout the year and are a serious predator of coyotes.
They eat rabbits, mice, ground squirrels, birds, lizards, grasses and fruit as well as beetles, grasshoppers and sometimes dead deer.
