The maned wolf is a carnivore similar in appearance to the red fox but with very long legs. The maned wolf also has a black neck crest that resembles a mane. It is found in the scrub and grasslands of the central parts of South America where it lives in male-female pairs. It is active at night, hunting rabbits, birds, mice and other creatures. Threats to the maned wolf include hunting, habitat loss and disease.
