ADW: Lycalopex culpaeus: INFORMATION
The culpeo, Lycalopex culpaeus sometimes known as the zorro culpeo or Andean fox wolfis a South American species of wild dog. It is the second largest native canid on the continent, after the maned wolf.
In its appearance it bears many similarities to the widely recognized red fox. It has grey and reddish fur, a white chin, reddish legs, and a stripe on its back that may be barely visible. The culpeo does attack sheep on occasion, and is therefore often hunted or poisoned.
In some regions it has become rare, but overall the species is not threatened with extinction. The culpeo was domesticated to form the Fuegian dog, but this became extinct sometime between and This is a fairly large canid, intermediate in size between a red fox and a coyote. The mean weight of the much larger male is Culpaeys, a weight range of five to Total length can range from 95 to cm 37 to 52 inincluding a tail of 32 to 44 cm 13 to 17 in in length.
The pelage has a fairly attractive, grizzled appearance. The neck and shoulders are often tawny to rufous in colour with the upper back being dark.
The bushy tail has a black tip. Its distribution extends from Ecuador and Lycalope to the southern regions of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. Some populations live in southern regions of Colombia.
It is most common on the western slopes of the Andes, where it inhabits open country and deciduous forests. Populations of the culpeo are also found in some of the cculpaeus of the Falkland Islands, where they were introduced by humans.
Its range also overlaps that of the much larger puma, but the size difference ensures that the two species have limited competition. The culpeo lives in a wide variety of habitats of western South America.
They are found in broadleaf Nothofagus lycalopsx rainforest, sclerophyllous matorral, deserts, and high plateaus, like the Altiplano, up to the tree line m. The typical mating period is between August and October. After a gestation period of 55—60 days, the female gives birth to cubs. The females usually give birth to pups among the rocks.
