tibetan fox.

"The Tibetan Fox (Vulpes ferrilata), also called the Tibetan Sand Fox or simply the Sand Fox, is a species of true fox that inhabits the high Tibetan Plateau in Nepal, China, and India, up to altitudes of about 5300 m. The fox was first described by the British naturalist Brian Houghton Hodgson in 1842. It has the highest sound sensitivity of all foxes."

now this: "The Tibetan Fox's karotype is made up of 36 chromosomes", while not very wtf, is interesting.

it's the face that makes it wtf.





no. really. what the fuck. anyone care to enlighten me as to the possible evolutionary advantages of this?
