Maned Wolf Portrait by Nambroth Maned Wolf Portrait by Nambroth
A small portrait of a Maned Wolf, as observed at the Denver Zoo.

Despite the name, maned wolves are not actually wolves, nor are they foxes (which they sort of look like). In fact, they are the only member of the genus Chrysocyon, and are not related to any other canids alive today. It is thought that they are perhaps the sole large land predator that survived the Pleistocene extinction. Either way, they are a very old species, and are really cool.

Acrylic paint on panel, 5" x 7"
