Maned Wolf Photos (Including a Fight!): Wild Wednesday

The maned wolves at the National Zoo are interesting creatures. They kind of look like long legged foxes and their habitat, well, it reeks. You can smell the maned wolves even when they aren't out. They're pretty animals though, and usually, at least based on our previous visits, they get along well.

 On our last visit, however, the male (on the left) kept attacking the female (on the right). At first it was over some food the keepers placed in their habitat (in two locations so there should have been enough for both) but then the male kept stalking and attacking the female a few more times in different parts of the habitat.

She successfully fended him off and they eventually ate from the two separate locations (peacefully).

May God bless you!
