Feeding Habits: The San Joaquin Kit Fox is a carnivore that is a nocturnal hunter. It is a secondary consumer and its diet consists of small animals. The small animals are rodents, rabbits, squirrels, birds, lizards, and insects. Population dynamics of San Joaquin kit foxes at the Naval Petroleum Reserves in California / by Brian L. Cypher [et al.] Cypher, Brian L. SK W4 no Population dynamics of wolves in north-central Minnesota / by Todd K. Fuller. Fuller, T. K. c The San Joaquin kit fox (V. m. mutica) is Federal Endangered and California Threatened. Range Map Specific Habitat Requirements. Feeding: Kit foxes primarily are carnivorous. The principal foods are black-tailed hares and desert cottontails, rodents (especially kangaroo rats and ground squirrels), insects, reptiles, and some birds, bird eggs. Dens are very important for this species, because they are nocturnal, their dens are crucial for protection during the day and from predators. Dens are also necessary for San Joaquin kit fox to reproduce. Kit foxes reach sexually maturity at 22 months and mate from December to March. An average of 3 to 5 pups is born after a 48 to 52 day pregnancy.

The kit fox is the smallest canid species in North America and the San Joaquin kit fox is the largest subspecies. It’s a small brown fox with a light colored belly, and large ears.

Coyote (Canis latrans) predation is the primary cause of mortality for endangered San Joaquin kit foxes (Vulpes macrotis mutica) at the Naval Petroleum Reserves in California (NPRC).

Between andthe kit fox population on NPRC declined approximately 66%. We investigated the population dynamics of the endangered San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica) and factors that influence kit fox demographics at the Naval Petroleum Reserves in California.

Reproduction of the San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica) was studied in areas of petroleum development and areas relatively undisturbed by development on and adjacent to Elk Hills Naval.

Abstract. The purpose of this study was to determine whether analysis of the elemental content of fur from San Joaquin kit foxes (Vulpes macrotis mutica) and of water and soil from kit fox habitats could be used to make inferences concerning the cause of an observed decline in the kit fox population on Naval Petroleum Reserve No.

DIXON, AND J. LINSDALE. Kit foxes. The San Joaquin kit fox was federally listed as an endangered species in and was listed by California four years later; the fox has gotten some help from a recovery plan for upland San Joaquin Valley, in which it's described as an “umbrella species” — meaning efforts to save the fox's habitat will benefit other native plants and.

The San Joaquin kit fox was listed as endangered by the U.S. Department of the Interior in (USFWS ) and by the State of California in (Table 1).

A recovery plan approved in proposed interim objectives of halting the decline of the San Joaquin kit fox and increasing population sizes above levels (USFWS ).

bers of endangered San Joaquin kit foxes (Vulpes macrotis mutica) at the Naval Petroleum Reserves in California (NPRC). Between andthe kit fox population on NPRC declined approximately 66% while coyote abundance apparently increased. Coyote predation was identified as the primary cause of mortality for kit foxes.

The San Joaquin kit fox inhabited much of California’s San Joaquin Valley prior to Its range extended from southern Kern County north to eastern Contra Costa County on the Valley’s west side and to Stanislaus County on the east side. By its range may have been reduced to half, mostly in the southern and western San Joaquin Valley File Size: KB.

The Naval Petroleum Reserves in California (NPRC) are oil fields administered by the DOE in the southern San Joaquin Valley of California. Four federally endangered animal species and one federally threatened plant species are known to occur on NPRC: San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica), blunt-nosed leopard lizard (Gambelia silus), giant kangaroo rat (Dipodomys ingens), Tipton kangaroo.

Burrows of other animals, particularly California ground squirrels (Spermophilus beecheyi) are opportunistically enlarged and utilized as den sites by San Joaquin kit foxes (Balestreri ). Although occupied dens may show freshly excavated soil, scats, and prey remains (O'Farrell ), such obvious signs are frequently absent (Hall ).

In contrast, California wolves probably did not interact with the San Joaquin kit fox directly. However, kit foxes benefited from wolf presence in two ways: (1) kit foxes likely received supplemental food resources from wolf caches and scavenged wolf kills (Wilmers et al.

), and (2) competitive interactions between kit foxes and coyotes. Habitats in and around Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 1 (NPR-1) support populations of various vertebrates and plants, including a number of threatened and endangered species.

Adequate conservation of habitats and species, particularly protected species, can be facilitated through development and implementation of management plans.

Background The Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves were established in the early s to ensure fuel supplies for the military.

The reserves were largely inactive until the Congress passed the Naval Petroleum Reserves Production Act of (P.L. ) in response to the Arab oil embargo.NATURAL HISTORY. SAN JOAQUIN KIT FOX } Vulpes macrotis mutica FAMILY: Canidae. DESCRIPTION: The San Joaquin kit fox is the smallest member of the dog family in North America, with an average body length of 20 inches, an average tail length of 12 inches, and a height of about nine to 12 inches at the shoulder.Safe and efficient techniques for the live capture of carnivores are limited.

In this study, we identified some of the factors that could affect the success of capturing red fox cubs with live capture traps (also known as cage traps). During a three-year period, we analysed 32 captures of 25 fox cubs ( captures/fox).

We assessed the impact of the following factors: sex of animals, month of.
