History:

Though its orange-red coloration resembles a fox, and it is called a wolf, it is not closely related to either animal. In fact, it is not closely related to any other member of its family, Canidae. Some scientists think it is the sole survivor of a group of large canids that lived in South America during the Pleistocene Epoch, which ended over 11,000 years ago.

Maned Wolves are considered a “Near Threatened” species. Traditionally, they were hunted in Brazil, however this process has mostly ended after the animal was declared vulnerable by the government there. It faces threats from habitat loss and automobile strikes, as well as diseases that it can catch from domestic dogs.
