The Maned Wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) is the largest canid in South America and resembles a large dog with reddish fur.
They are distributed across southern Brazil, Paraguay, Peru and Bolivia east of the Andes. It is an endangered species and its range once included Uruguay and northern Argentina, although IUCN lists it as ‘lower risk’. The Maned Wolf is the only species in the genus Chrysocyon.
It appears as a cross among different species: the head and colouring of a wolf, the large ears of an African hunting dog and the body of a hyena. Some think the wolf looks like a mix between a wolf and a fox. The Maned Wolf has often been described as a ‘Red Fox on stilts’.
The adult Maned Wolf stands almost 1 metre (3 feet) tall at the shoulder and weighs 20 to 25 kilograms. (50 to 55 pounds).
Its fur is reddish brown on the sides and it has long black legs and a distinctive black mane. The coat is further marked with whitish tufts at the tip of the tail and a white ‘bib’ beneath the throat. Their mane is able to stand upright and is typically used to enlarge the wolfs profile when threatened or when displaying aggression.
