The Maned Wolf! So fox-like. So beautiful. ...So TALL!! The largest canid in South America, and the tallest canid on Earth, the Maned Wolf (not a wolf at all, but rather the last remaining species of an extinct genus of canids) lives mostly in open grasslands (scientists speculate that this might be why this dog has evolved to be so bizarrely tall). Oh, and did I mention that they have an absolutely *terrifying*, prehistoric sounding roar-bark?…
