Game Reserve Wines: The Bat-Eared Fox

published on: Monday, 11 December 2017

Aptly named the bat eared fox (Otocyon megalotis) these fascinating little creatures have large ears which can pinpoint sounds underground with 100% accuracy. Active during the day and night, they feed mainly on termites and live in old ant bear dens in the ground. We are actively trying to protect this unique species, indigenous to our Robertson estate, as they are often identified by farmers as jackals and killed - a practice we’re striving to eradicate.
