Maned Wolf and her pup.....Native to South America, Maned Wolves are unique among canids. They are distinguished by long legs, a bushy mane which is erected when the Wolf is threatened, and a skunk-like odor. Maned Wolves live solitary lives roaming the grasslands of central South America. They eat small mammals as well as tubers, fruits, and sugarcane.
The Maned Wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) is the largest canid of South America, resembling a large fox with reddish fur. This wolf lives in grasslands with scattered bushes and trees in South America & don't form packs & hunt alone. Monogamous pairs may defend a shared territory they patrol at night, but may seldom meet, outside of mating. kalak, Borochi pup
