Maned Wolf is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.


Maned Wolf has orange eyes, long orange hair that fades to white in two of her bangs, and two black ponytails with a pair of pointy animal ears at the top of her head. As with other Friends, she bears the tail of her characteristic animal, having a long orange tail which grades to white near its tip. She wears an orange fur bow tie, a white bare midriff sleeveless shirt and ripped blue mini jeans. Both her long gloves and leggings have an orange color that fades to black at the bottom, matching her black shoes.

In Real Life

A Maned wolf

The Maned Wolf is the largest of all South American canids, whose range extends from the Amazon basin rainforest in Brazil to the dry shrub forests of Bolivia, Peru, Paraguay and northern Argentina. Its head and body length ranges from 1245 to 1320 mm and tail length from 280 to 405 mm. It has a long golden-red coat with an erectile mane and its body displays multiple black and white portions, particularly on the legs, that grade from red to black at their lower portions.

The Maned Wolf lives in grassland, savanna, dry shrub forest, swampy areas, forest-edge habitat, and river areas. The long thin legs are a notable adaptation to these areas, allowing the canid to run fast, see above tall grass, and live in lower terrains, places with low stability and flooded fields. These animals walk by moving the legs on the same side of its body together, allowing them to save energy and travel great distances.

The narrow body and particular dentition of the maned wolf reflects its food habits, as this animal does not need to kill or eat large prey. The omnivorous diet of the Maned Wolf includes a wide variety of plant material and animals, including fruits, arthropods and small to medium-sized vertebrates.

These wolves are solitary by nature—they hunt, travel and rest solitarily, and are only closely associated during the breeding season. Maned wolves are primarily nocturnal and have crepuscular activity peaks.


  • The maned wolf's natural history and its evolutionary relationship to the other members of the canid family make it a unique animal, being closely related to neither wolves nor foxes.
  • The nocturnal habits and large body have associated this animal to the myth of the "Lobizón" or werewolf, in certain areas of Argentina.
