Maned Wolf

 

(Chrysocyon brachyurus), a carnivorous mammal of the family Canidae. The body is relatively short (125–130 cm), and the legs are very long (height at the withers, about 75 cm); the weight is about 23 kg. Maned wolves are fast runners. The tail is bushy and about 30 cm long; the ears are broad and high. The general coloration is yellowish-red. The fur at the shoulder and the upper part of the neck is longer (up to 13 cm) and forms a mane (hence the name).

Maned wolves live in southern Brasil, eastern Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, and northern Argentina. They eat small animals, birds, lizards, invertebrate animals, fruits, and berries. In some regions they will attack sheep. They cause little economic loss because their numbers are small.
