In Real Life

Profile shot of a Culpeo.

Culpeos are native to the western side of South America, from Ecuador to southern Chile and Argentina, throughout the line of the Andes. They are the largest member of the genus Lycalopex, and the second largest of all South American canid, only surpassed by the Maned Wolf. Those foxes are about 4 to 14 kg, with a body length of 45 to 95 cm and tail length of 30 to 50 cm. In most foxes, the coat is grizzled gray on the back, reddish-brown in the head and legs, and dark gray on the tail with a black tip. Those foxes are a solitary species, reported to be nocturnal in some areas, while also being diurnal or crepuscular in others.

Culpeos are known to live in various habitat types, from rugged and mountain terrain, deep valleys and open deserts, to deciduous forests, ranging from 0 to 4500 m above sea level. This wide range may be explained by them being dietary generalists, as they are omnivores and eat all kinds of prey, ranging from small mammals such as wild ungulates, hares and sheep, to other kinds of food like fruit, insects, birds, lizards and even carrion. As such, Culpeos have an important role in population control.

Trivia

  • Culpeo is said to stem from the Mapuche "culpem", meaning "madness", referring to how this fox boldly reveals itself to hunters.
