Maned wolf Description
  The maned wolf is the most unusual looking of the canids. Actually it is not a wolf at all, but much more closely related to foxes. They have thick, medium length hair. The hair around their neck is much thicker and longer, like a mane. Their legs are extremely long and slender which has given them the name "a fox on stilts". Their ears are very large.
