ABOUT

This long-legged canine looks like a cross between a fox and a wolf, but it is neither. It lopes solitarily across the grassland.

Solitary creatures, maned wolves hunt alone in open grasslands. They resemble both wolves and foxes but are more closely related to wild dogs. They are more skittish than wolves but are nearly as territorial. Unlike most other canines, maned wolves will not form packs, though sometimes mating pairs will share a hunting territory. Maned wolves are omnivorous and do not solely subsist on hunting prey, they enjoy fruits especially and are willing to feed on carrion. They are highly-resilient animals that survive in difficult environments like burned out areas after grass fires or near human settlements.
