When: December 6, 2017
Where: Zie-ZOO Volkel, The Netherlands

One of the two stunning Maned Wolves :heart:
I am not yet able to tell the male and female apart, but hope to be able to do so eventually :aww: One is slightly darker though.

Species: Maned Wolf (Manenwolf)

Latin name: Chrysocyon Brachyurus

Originates from South America.

Current status: Near Threatened

Did you know:

… The Maned Wolf is the largest canid of South America.

… It is the only species in the genus Chryosocyon – a Latin name meaning “Golden Dog”.

… The Maned Wolf is locally known as “large fox” in the Guarani language.

… Many people compare the Maned Wolf with the red fox due to some minor similarities, though is actually closest related to the Bush Dog.

… The mane of the Maned Wolf can be erected to enlarge its profile when threatened or when displaying aggression.

… The Maned Wolf is known to have a distinctive odor, which has earned it the nickname “skunk wolf”.

Why does he look so dreepy ?

It's the shape and placement of his eyebrows - those dark patches above his eyes - combined with the slant of his head ;)
When you see him from the front, head tilted up, he doesn't look as dreepy. But yes, that's definitely the face of this individual, he can't help it ;)

He does, but you know, it's all due to the shape and placement of his eyebrows paired with the tilt of his head;)

awww, that face and worried expression!
By the way, it is very difficult to differ a male from a female. In one Czech zoo, a pair of maned wolves was kept - the zoo wanted to breed them of course.
But no pups were born for pretty long time.
So the zoo checked the animals to find out they keep two she-wolves :XD:

Thanks :meow:

Either or both of  them have really perfected the worried expression; their dark eyebrows always make them look as if something is amiss.

I didn't know that! They're kind of like hyenas in that regard then, that you can't really determine their gender from the outside?
I know the zoo is pretty confident that they do, in fact, have a female and a younger male, but now I'm starting to wonder... You see them try at times, so to speak, but the supposed male doesn't really seem to understand how it works :lol:
But then, I've seen females mount each other too, and males as well. So there's no telling.
