The Maned Wolf looks more like a long-legged fox. They have reddish-brown coats and extremely long legs. Their name comes from the long patch of black hair that sticks up on the back of their neck.

They inhabit the South American countries such as Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina and Peru living in tall grassland habitats.

Their prey consists of rabbits, birds, rodents, insects and occasionally fish. They will also feed on fruits when available.
