Maned Wolf. by quaddie Maned Wolf. by quaddie
Despite being an animal of warmer climes,the Maned Wolves seemed to be enjoying the snowy covering to their enclosure.

Chrysocyon brachyurus

The Maned Wolf is found in open and semi-open habitats, especially grasslands with scattered bushes and trees, in south, central-west and south-eastern Brazil,where its long legs allows it to see above the long grass.

Its diet is varied,being split evenly between meat and vegetable matter,including fruits.

Such a majestic animal, and you captured it beautifully. It's a shame they were inside the entire day when we were there - both of them were hiding in the little enclosure all the time, even though we kept coming back to see them.
Amazing shot, anyway :heart:

That's awesome! The zoos close to my house don't have anything like that. Although, there are hyenas at one of them. :)

Wow your zoo has lots of cool stuff. I haven't even heard of a lot of these. The two zoos nearest my house has just the normal stuff. Lions, tigers, bears, (oh my. :D) penguins, meerkats, that kind of stuff. Although, one of them has a snow leopard. You never see it though. :(

A very odd looking animal,though living in tall grass those legs certainly help :)..

They among tall grasses,so the long legs help them see food..
