Desert fox, also called the white-footed fox, is the third sub-species of red fox in India. Its range does not overlap with that of other red dox sub-species. Desert fox inhabits the dry and semi-arid regions of western and north-western India. It can be distinguished from the Indian fox based on its white-tipped tail.
