Long legs! by Lhuin Long legs! by Lhuin
Went to a local zoo a few days ago, and they had maned wolves! ;__; :heart: one of my favourite animals ever. Been to only one zoo before where they had them but they weren't even out back then. These guys were sleeping in the house that you can see in the background, and I was thinking I'm not going to get a single picture of them that day but then something grabbed their attention and they randomly sprung out of the house yey :D

I'm happy I got some photos anyway! there was a big branch in front of the other maned wolf here but I tried if I could photoshop it out. Kinda worked I guess. Not the best quality photo ever anyway, have to go back someday and see if I can get more. Was amazing seeing these animals in real life though, they're such interesting and different kind of creatures with their long legs and everything. :aww:

These two are called Rocket and Raz I believe, from Banham Zoo.
Also fun fact, they're neither foxes OR wolves but their own species!

Never even heard of these guys until I saw this picture... Then I went to google and checked out some videos and found this video of what one of these guys sound like:

What's funny is no matter how long their legs, animals' elbows and knees always seen to be at the same level as their chest! :D

I am also passionate about maned wolves! They are simply beautiful!
I'm from Rio de Janeiro, and here at the zoo, has a couple. They are skittish, but I managed to pass hand in one, after so get your attention!
It was just perfect!
After laughing a bit because the sound they produce is very funny, seems a scream, are beautiful too!
I still want to get one, one day.
