Adaptations

NutritionManed wolves are omnivorous, eating small mammals, insects, reptiles, birds, bird eggs, fruits, and vegetation

BehaviorThe Maned Wolf is a calm wolf. It is shy so it doesn't tend to attack humans. They only get aggressive when another Wolf is in their terretory.

Interesting FactIn my opinion the most interseting fact about the Maned Wolf is the way it marks its terretory. It used his urine wich is compared to the smell of a skunk spray.
