Maned Wolf Baculum Replica measures 77mm or 3.0 inches. The Maned Wolf Baculum Replica is Museum Quality and made in the USA. The largest canid in South America, the maned wolf looks like a fox, is called a wolf, and is closely related to neither. Maned wolves primarily eat small animals, fruits and vegetables. The maned wolf bears minor similarities to the red fox, although it belongs to a different genus. The average adult weighs 23 kg (51 lb) and stands 90 cm (35 in) tall at the shoulder, has a head-body length of 100 cm (39 in) with the tail adding another 45 cm (18 in). Its ears are large and long (7 inches). The maned wolf is the tallest of the wild canids; its long legs are likely an adaptation to the tall grasslands of its native habitat. Fur of the maned wolf may be reddish-brown to golden orange on the sides with long, black legs, and a distinctive black mane. The coat is marked further with a whitish tuft at the tip of the tail and a white “bib” beneath the throat. The mane is erectile and typically is used to enlarge the wolf’s profile when threatened or when displaying aggression. Melanistic maned wolves do exist, but are rare. The first photograph of a black adult maned wolf was taken by a camera trap in northern Minas Gerais in Brazil in 2013.
The maned wolf’s footprints are similar to those of the dog, but have disproportionately small plantar pads when compared to the well-opened digit marks. The dog has pads up to 3 times larger than the maned wolf’s footprint. These pillows have a triangular shape. The front footprints are 7 to 9 cm long and 5.5 to 7 cm wide, and those of the hind feet are 6.5 to 9 cm long and 6.5 to 8.5 cm wide. One feature that differentiates the maned wolf’s footprint from that of other South American canids is the proximal union of the third and fourth digits.
