|The Maned Wolf (also called the Guara) isn't actually a wolf. It's a VERY tall dog. The natives got it right when they called it a "fox on stilts." It is a nocturnal animal that is totally nonthreatening to humans. It is commonly a victim of hunters because it pauses out of curiosity when it is being pursued. Maned Wolves have not been successfully bred in captivity. This photo was taken by and permission to use it granted by Loren McIntyre.|
