The largest canid in South America, the Maned wolf or Chrysocyon brachyurus 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 51 lb. and stands 35 in. tall at the shoulder, has a head-body length of 39 in. with the tail adding another 18 in. Its ears are large and 7 inches long.
The maned wolf or Chrysocyon brachyurus 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 or Chrysocyon brachyurus 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. The first photograph of a black adult maned wolf or Chrysocyon brachyurus was taken by a camera trap in northern Minas Gerais in Brazil in 2013.
The Maned wolf or Chrysocyon brachyurus 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.
