Adorable Baby Wolf Can't Resist Tummy Scratch
This rescued maned wolf pup may look big, but he is only 3 months old, and loves attention! He just can't help making the funniest sounds when getting a scratch! It doesn't get more adorable than this! The maned wolf bears minor similarities to the red fox, although it belongs to a different genus, but it is not a fox, nor is it a wolf. It belongs to a category that is referred to as "golden dog".
According to the official Wikipedia article, "unlike other large canids (such as the gray wolf, the African hunting dog, or the dhole) the maned wolf does not form packs. It hunts alone, usually between sundown and midnight. Maned wolves rotate their large ears to listen for prey animals in the grass. They tap the ground with a front foot to flush out the prey and pounce to catch it.
It's hard to imagine this fuzzy fella as a fierce hunter, but he will grow up to be one nonetheless. But just like any young one in nature, he is playful, adorable, and makes the most precious sounds. And of course, loves tummy rubs. But then again, who doesn't? (cats are obviously excluded from this category)
