The Corsac Fox (Vulpes corsac), also known as the Steppe Fox, is a medium sized Asiatic fox species spread throughout the steppes and semi-desert of central and northeast Asia. It is found in large areas of central Asia including northern Afghanistan, northeast China, Kashmir, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Russia, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
This fox prefers open steppes and semi deserts. True deserts with drifting sands are avoided, so are dense and tall grass steppes, low lying hills are inhabited but not mountains. Corsac foxes generally stay far away from human disturbance. In winter the distribution of corsac foxes are affected by the thickness of snow. They cannot walk on snow with depth over 15 cm.
