Guide to Wild Dogs by Continent

Postby caninesrock » Thu Mar 23, 2017 10:38 pm

So, I was bored and made a list of what types of wild dogs can be found on the different continents, so enjoy. Also, all images are from either Wikipedia, Wikimedia or Arkive.org unless otherwise specified. Also, where a species occurs in more than one continent, I try to show a photo of a subspecies that lives in each respective continent.


South America
Crab-eating Fox (Crab-eating Zorro)
Image
Culpeo(Andean Fox)
Image
And an extra pic of a different subspecies just cause I like culpeos and think this one looks different:
Image
Darwin's Fox
Image
Chilla(Argentine Grey Fox, Grey Zorro, South American Grey Fox)
Image
Pampas Fox (Azara's Zorro, Azara's Fox)
Image
Sechuran Fox (Peruvian Desert Fox, Sechura Fox)
Image
Hoary Fox (Hoary Zorro)
Image
Short-eared Dog (Small-eared Zorro)
Image
Maned Wolf
Image
Bush Dog
Image
Gray Fox(same species found in North America, different from the Chilla)
Image

North America
Gray Fox
Image
Island Fox
Image
Cozumel Fox (proposed separate species from the main Island Fox. This species may already be extinct if it was separate from the Island Fox.)
The Cozumel fox is an undescribed species of fox in the genus Urocyon, which is apparently close to extinction or even already extinct. It is (or was until recently) found on the island of Cozumel, Mexico.[1] The last reported sighting was in 2001, but surveys focusing on this species have not yet been carried out.[1][2] The Cozumel fox, which has not been scientifically described to date, is a dwarf form like the island fox but slightly larger, being up to three-quarters the size of the gray fox.[2] It had been isolated on the island for at least 5,000–13,000 years, and probably far longer. This would indicate that the colonization of the island of Cozumel by Urocyon predates that of humans.[2]

That's a nice way of sorting out all the canines. :) Thank you for taking the time.

Woah, never knew how many kind of canines there are! I didn't know of how many types of fox there were either! I like the Culpeo(Andean Fox), so beautiful.

Thanks for sharing!

You started something though... I got a little stuck looking up more pics of bat-eared foxes. Just can't get enough of those ears! :mrgreen:

@Pat: Lol. I bet I wouldn't be. XD I personally think the raccoon dog and the bush dog are the most unique. They're both
odd little canines.


@Ash: Thanks. It was alot of work, but I had fun making the list. ^^


@H20 Sl
The Culpeo is one of my favorite canines. Some fun facts are that they are actually more closely related to dogs and wolves
than true foxes and also they were once domesticated into an animal called a Fuegian Dog, but that sadly went extinct. I think
it would be cool to try to do a domestication experiment with culpeos like the one they did with the Red Fox in Russia to see
if I could recreate the Fuegian Dog, but alas, that requires alot of land, money, and a fox legal state. Maybe one day in the
far future.

@Kagney Hehe. :D They do have odd ears. There's people on exoticanimalsforsale.net who actually sell Bat-eared fox kits if you ever
wanted to get one. XD
