The Unusual Maned Wolf

The maned wolf is an unusual animal that is related to the forest fox and the bush dog. At first, it greatly resembles a fox. It has a shaggy tail with a white tip and large ears and since it has long legs it has been nicknamed “fox on stilts”. Its home is South America where the maned wolf can be found in the Amazon basin rainforest in Brazil, the dry shrub forests of Paraguay, and northern Argentina.

The manned wolf’s diet consists of a combination of vegetables, fruit, and meat. It will prey on rodents, frogs, and small birds and enjoys apples, bananas, and avocados. Unfortunately, it is also threatened by encroaching human populations that mean loss of its habitat so there are efforts being made to save it.

  1. This is such a fashionable looking wolf fox or doggie mix. Unusual with a mane on his top shoulders. I have never seen these. Thanks for presenting this very beautiful yet different looking wolf… or fox… or doggie.
