Maned Wolves of Piaui, Brazil
The Maned Wolf is like a red fox on stilts. It lives in the beautiful cerrado of central Brazil. In Piaui a family of former trappers have specialized on show casing (rather than trapping) wildlife. Their extensive knowledge is elemental to allow for a face-to-face encounter with the Maned wolf, nut-cracking monkeys and flocks of Hyacinth macaws.
