It's Been A While, Here Are Some Facts About Maned Wolves

IT'S ME, THE PERSON NO ONE KNOWS. (Aspen Houx). Yeah. I mean like seriously why am I even allowed to guestpost on this blog. I don't know history. I barely even blog in general. My own blog was like a sad attempt at growing a bonsai tree that withered and died. 

Anywho, I have come to share a secret of the Earth. Yes, it is the one and only, maned wolf. Basically a red fox on stilts, and if you hadn't known already I love foxes. Maned wolves are really cool, not only because they look like foxes with deer legs, but because they aren't even wolves. What. 

These awesome canines are actually related closest to the forest fox and bush dog, and thrive around in the tall grasses of South America. Being the tallest species of canines, maned wolves look kind of like the lanky awkward teenagers of the animal kingdom. 


Fun Facts About Maned Wolves:
- They can grow up to 1 metre tall
- Their urine smells like marijuana
- They are omnivores. Half of their diet consists of fruit, which is odd for a canine
- Their black mane stands up when they detect a threat
- They have a spooky bark: https://youtu.be/oBSGEl-yB7A
- They're nocturnal

Unfortunately maned wolves are endangered due to loss of habitat, being killed by farmers trying to protect their livestock, introduction of new diseases, and more. Let's try to not let them go extinct please.

  1. Why do you post on my blog more often than you post on your own blog? Thanks for keeping my readers entertained though. I'm sure they like seeing something different once in a while.

  2. I keep forgetting I have a blog and then I realize that more people will see my posts on your blog instead of my own because yours has more veiwers thus my posts are ultimately more useful to the human race when posted on your blog than on my own.
