Bat-eared foxes ‘insectivory’ and luck: lessons from an extreme canid
This chapter presents a case study of bat-eared foxes in the Serengeti in order to shed light on the questions: how does their behaviour differ from that of other canids, and why? Topics discussed include group composition, dispersal, and philopatry; litter size, sex ratio, and reproductive success; energetics of female reproduction; rabies and mortality; and resources and sociality.
