    I always enjoy the feeling of seeing something new for the first time. This is a Maned Wolf. Out of all of the nature shows I've watched as a kid and as an adult, I have never seen this animal before. I have seen anime drawings of it before, but I never new it was based on this animal here.

    I always like when I'm reminded that there is more that exists in this world than I'm aware of.

    That's a cool looking critter. I'm somewhat of an animal freak myself, I never saw that one before either.

    Very cool!

    Looking at those long legs, my mind thought, if that thing had mange and was hairless it is probably what people were seeing when they thought it was a "Chupracabra". LOL

    Anime style wolf that share similar characteristics. Now I know where they got the idea from.

    Makes me think of a long legged fox.

    I think your first photo is really interesting, the way the fellow has his neck stretched out to take some food from the caretaker, and with those long legs. It almost looks like a giraffe-wolf123
