That always seems to be the case whenever I'm at a wildlife sanctuary that possesses maned wolves. xD They always seem to be either curled up asleep in the far corner of the habitat, or otherwise completely hidden altogether. I got one of my first good looks at the animal about a month ago while at the Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure in Salina, KS. They have two maned wolves, and the first couple times I passed by their enclosure, they were of course nowhere to be seen. It wasn't until several hours later that I peeked over their way while wandering throughout the zoo and I noticed they were out. It was kind of a "OH they're out! Quick, I have to go over there before they hide again!" moment. ^^" I didn't get many pictures, unfortunately.

hmm, i don't remember so much when i go to the zoo,it's far from my city and we don't have so much time to go, unfortunally, i just go ONE time, poor me, XD, well, it's fun go there, the ice cream is sooooo BIG! Oh my, I can not eat it before I slob all with ice cream, thx for post this! :D

I think I managed to get a picture or two, but I believe fast movement made them blurry. Ethier that, or the large plant (I do not know the name of it) hid it from view as the camera flashed. But yes, I was caught up in a similar moment.
They certainly don't seem to stay out long or are in view, then.

I do not remember much, but if the maned wolf is really like that, I also did not see it right, so I think the beautiful wolf I saw was a gray wolf, for he was very quiet, lying ... :D

Oh, I've never heard of such a wolf...
But Now that i've seen the picture and searched up some information...
They are very beautiful and fascinating creatures, it really would be a shame if they died out.

Yeah, we do need to defend them. And we don't want anymore numbers dropping.

Maned wolves are not foxes. They're an entirely different species of animal. Their genus is Chrysocyon, while the genus of a fox is Vulpes.

The maned wolf is indeed not a fox! I think you are talking about the blood drinking Chupacabra,very ugly animals.But I don't think chupacabras are foxes either.I believe in them!! But anyway I have never heard of a maned wolf! how interesting.I wonder what a maned animal feels like.
When the love ends, the best way to get over it is to...Throw skittles at people!

Throw them at a random person and say...
