MACDONALD Animal Behaviour Research Group, Department of Zoology» South Parks Road, Oxford 3PS Summary. -- Aspects of the ranging behaviour, spatial organisation and diet of Ruppell's foxes are described. Radio tracking revealed that six adults were organised as three monogamous pairs ; members of each pair often shared a den, whereas the day ranges of each pair did not overlap with that of any other pair. By night, these foxes travelled home ranges which, averaged (grid cell method) 30.4 sq km ; overlap of polygonal home ranges was greater within than between pairs. These foxes were omnivores, their diet including small mammals, insects, lizards and birds.

Le radio-pistage a permis de constater que six adultes etaient organises en trois couples monogames. Les membres de chaque couple partageaient souvent le meme terrier, mais pendant le jour le domaine de chaque couple ne se superposait pas ceux des autres2 couples. De nuit ces renards parcouraient des domaines d'une surface voisine de 30,4 km ; la superposition des domaines polygonaux etait meilleure chez les membres du meme
