The maned wolf is the largest canid of South America. Its markings resemble those of foxes, but it is not a fox, nor is it a wolf, as it is not closely related to other canids. It is the only species in the genus Chrysocyon (meaning "golden dog").It is found in open and semi-open habitats, especially grasslands with scattered bushes and trees, in  Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru.

This magical oasis of foxiness is called Zao Fox Village, and it’s located in Japan’s Miyagi prefecture. For 100 yen (or about 85 US cents), visitors are provided with food, but because the foxes are not…

Wolves of the world . One thing, though. Ethiopian wolves are canids, but not actual members of the wolf species. All true wolves (including domestic dogs) are listed under CANIS LUPUS, while the Ethiopian wolf is listed under CANIS SIMENSIS.

The raccoon dog, which is not a raccoon, is a member of the Canid family (which includes dogs, wolves and coyotes). Originally the animal was from the Pacific coast of Russia, China, Japan, and Korea, but has been exported to Eastern Europe and Scandinavia as a fur animal. It's an omnivore but apparently can eat toxic toads by using an "excess of saliva".
