Alot of people call these canines Foxes on stilts as a joke. Does anyone here own them? Or worked with them?

Maned Wolves are really cool but they are endangered so unlikely that anyone owns them. You are more likely to see then at a zoo. Apparently the smell pretty bad though. XD

We have them at the Houston Zoo here. And yes, the smell is very skunk-like when you pass by their enclosure. The sign with the information on them in front of their enclosure even has a section about it called "What's that smell?" They are beautiful animals though. They look like a cross between a red fox and wolf,but they aren't closely related to either, other than the fact that all 3 are in the canine family. They seem to be very elusive. Alot of times they are hiding in the bushes or way in the back of the enclosure. I must have been to the zoo atleast 20 times and go to their enclosure every time, yet only ever 1 in 5 of those trips, have they actually been somewhere where I could easily see them without searching around the enclosure closely and I've still never managed to get a decent picture of them,even though I've been able to get a good of picture of every other canid I've seen at a zoo.

Funny the one time I went they were pacing along the edge of the enclosure and I got a good pic. I don't think I still have it though.
