The elegant Maned Wolf, sometimes referred to as a 'red fox on stilts'.

The maned wolf is the largest canid of South America. Its markings resemble those of foxes, but it is not a fox, nor is it a wolf, as it is not closely related to other canids. It is the only species in the genus Chrysocyon (meaning "golden dog").It is found in open and semi-open habitats, especially grasslands with scattered bushes and trees, in  Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru.
