Red Wolves are similar to red foxes, although they have much longer legs. They have a body length between 1.2 and 1.3 m (4 - 4.25 ft), a tail length between 28 and 45 cms (11 - 18 inches) and they weigh between 20 and 23 kgs (44 - 51 lbs).
Their coat is long and reddish/yellow in colour and the lower part of their legs are black. Their tail is either white or has a white tip.
Maned Wolves are found in the grasslands and at the edges of swamps in South America. They are solitary and are active during the night.
Maned Wolves feed on large rodents, birds, reptiles, frogs, fruit and insects.
After a gestation period of 65 days, Maned Wolves give birth to a litter of 2 - 5 cubs. They are weaned at around 4 months old and reach sexual maturity at 2 years of age.
Humans are predators of Maned Wolves.
There are no subspecies of the Maned Wolf.
