The Maned Wolf - Chrysocyon brachyurus (2018) By NVious Graphics [Nick Vasliou] And NeedAMFBeat Admin [Chris Gersic]/FXXX Beats

The Maned Wolf - Chrysocyon brachyurus

Meet your new favorite 4 legged “deer-wolf-fox hybrid” the Maned Wolf,
discovered in 1815.

They look like an overgrown fox with very long legs and orange-reddish furs.

They possess fox-like features but they are nowhere related to fox, wolf, coyote, dog, or jackal. The Maned Wolf 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. Which has often been described as a Red Fox on stilts, and is also known as skunk wolf because of its distinctive odour. An adult can stand up to 3 feet tall at the shoulder and weighs 50 to 55 pounds, and have unusually long ears that can be as long as 7 inches. Their third and fourth fingers are joined which makes up for a unique paw-print. They look very clumsy while walking because their movement comprises of their limbs moving almost together,
 giving them an appearance of bicycle.

The species is a nocturnal animal and hunts during dawn and dusk.
Maned wolves specialize in small prey.
 Maned Wolves search for rodents, armadillos, birds, reptiles, insects, fish, arthropods, hares, and an occasional pampas deer.
Most interestingly of all, a large portion of the diet, is made of fruits and plant matter, especially Wolf Apples, a tomato-like fruit which grows throughout its range and
is thought to provide medicinal aid against the giant kidney worm.
Preferring to rest under forest cover during the day and hunt until sunrise.
They have no contact with humans apart from stealing their poultry animals,
or being hunted for doing so.

Contrary to popular opinion,
Maned wolves are very shy and
only attack humans when they feel threatened or afraid.

Maned Wolves do not form packs like other wolves.
They live in monogamous pairs (having one partner for life)
and only interact during the breeding season.
 Mothers give birth to 2 – 5 maned wolf pups.

In captivity, males help raise pups by regurgitating food.
Captive Maned Wolves live between 12 – 15 years.
Little information is known about family habits of wild Maned wolves.

Maned wolves were the only canids species that survived
the late Pleistocene extinction of South American canids.
The study of its DNA published in 2009,
has revealed that maned wolves are closely
 related to the extinct Falkland Islands wolves
and both of them share common ancestor that existed about 6 million years ago.

 The current population of Maned Wolves is estimated at approximately 17,000.
The Maned Wolf inhabits lowland grasslands and scrublands of central South America.
The majority of the population lives in Brazil.
They have been assessed as Near Threatened in the last decade or so,
the Maned Wolf main habitats have been subject to intense deforestation.

 The species situation is considered to be of major concern
 due to various threats other than deforestation
 including diseases communicated
by domestic dogs, giant kidney worm, and attacks by farmers.
