Mischievous Maned Wolf Cubs

The Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland welcomed four Maned Wolf cubs in March which are just now starting to venture out of the den. The first two pictures were taken more recently and the second two show the tiny cubs in their den, albeit a bit unclearly. Thanks to Lesley4444 for sharing.

Although often called a "red fox on stilts," the Maned Wolf is not closely related to any other living canid (dogs and wolves, foxes, and related species). Their long legs help them see over tall grasses in their native South America. 

Mom in all her long-legged glory.
