The maned wolf is native to South America. Their natural habitat is grasslands, savannah and swampy areas. They have large territories, which are shared by a breeding pair.

diet

Diet

They are omnivores (eat meat and plants), with a varied diet including small mammals, birds, insects and fruit. They stalk their prey and catch it with a high, swift pounce like a fox.

behaviour

Breeding

They are monogamous breeders (the same male and female breed for life), but are often solitary except for the breeding season. After a pregnancy of around 2 months, 2 to 4 pups are born in a hidden den and pups are born with a black coat.

threat

Conservation

Maned wolves are classed as ‘Near Threatened’, as the population has shown some decline due to the loss and fragmentation of their habitat. They are part of a European Breeding Programme to conserve numbers in captivity.
