Best wild canids coming through. First is a dhole. And here is also a documentary about a lone female african wild dog whose pack was eradicated by lions, and traveled, played and slept with hyenas and jackals. Sometimes her, a hyena or two and jackals would hunt together.

Winter coat dholes look like what I imagine a dog could look like if bred as such but I am not sure if they are able to produce hybrids with dholes. Dholes however can breed with golden jackals, and golden jackals can breed with dogs so I assume so. Unfortunately dholes are endangered otherwise we could probably give people dhole hybrids instead of them getting shit foxes.

The closest relatives to bush dogs are african wild dogs and maned wolves. Here's an interestingly pale AWD.

Culpeo is a 'false fox' and used to be domesticated to create the Fuegian dog before they were all exterminated.

Huh. That's neat. Fully domesticated or "domesticated"?

Not sure, there is very little info on it. There is no mention when or how long they had them but if not truly domesticated prehaps as 'tame' as the Falkland Islands wolf.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuegian_dog

Supposedly this is a stuffed one but I am not sure how much I trust this site either since they first talk about them being small and fox like, then say they were up to 77lbs. No other sites that I can find provide any more information, it's all copy and paste, parroted, rewritten, etc info. However the colors of this stuffed animal does show 'domestic' traits, and it has short little ears. Anatomy can really get lost with taxidermy but even if this is not a culpeo I don't believe it's an actual dog.

Dholes can kill tigers, there's even one famous panting I think.
I do wonder how the lions living on the territory of my country got along with wolves and bears. Sadly we may never know. At least the beaver is being reintroduced.

>>2298514
Someone should post side by side pic of dhole irl and dholes in far cry to see how accurate they got them
>>
>>2299083
This one? I can't find any sources on dholes killing a tiger but will stand up to one for a bit. I think its very unlikely an average pack can kill a tiger(and even if they can, i think they'd be smart enough to back off) but wiki says they can gather in up to 40 individuals. Even ridgeback dogs kept lions at bay until their masters came to kill rather than killing a lion themselves and dholes are much smaller.

What country are you from?

>>2299092
Do you mean the dholes in Far Cry Primal? When I played that I had to look it up because I thought it was weird they had actual dholes in FC3 and the wiki says
>Far Cry Primal's Dholes strongly resemble the African Wild Dogs (Lycaon pictus). A canid believed to be the ancestor of both modern Dholes and African Wild Dogs, Xenocyon lycanoides, lived in Europe during the Pleistocene. Primal's "Dholes", therefore, could represent Xenocyon, and simply be referred to as Dholes, because Xenocyon does not have a common name.
Since the game wasn't in Africa I can see why they didn't call them African wild dogs but they could have just called them wild dogs, painted dogs, lycaon/lycans.

Bush dogs are very interesting to me since it surprised me that they were true canids. They look like they belong to the weasel family more and they remind me of amphicyonids aka 'bear-dogs'.

I used to have a photo of a maned wolf standing on its hind legs next to a human but I can't find it anymore. It really showed how big these things are.

I think it should be renamed stiltfox or something a-like that. Barely looks like a wolf.
>>
>>2299241
There's tons of 'mislabeled' animal names. Mountain chicken, red panda, prairie dog, flying fox, etc. Mountain chicken apparently tastes like chicken though.

I think maned fox/maned wolf has a good ring to it. Put 'maned' in front of anything and it sounds cool. Maned cat, maned rat, maned eagle, maned worm.

>There's tons of 'mislabeled' animal names.
I am aware.
I have books on my region's dialect and several species of owl are all called "cat owl" and the cormorant is called mud goose, the yellowhammer the scatfinch and the pine marten is called tree-otter. Many such cases.

I personally dislike, even loathe, how science is encroaching on these names, since many are funny and unique, and replacing them with the unfunny institutionalized ones.

So when I say renamed, I am not asking for an official name. I think Latin names are for that.

And coining words doesn't work says cognitive psychologist Steven "Ass" Pinker.
>>
>>2299261
Sounds insignificant to be upset about and more trouble than it's worth to rename all these things.

I wonder if there was a documentary about thegoldenpalace.com monkey could the casino sue if they only called it Madidi titi or by it's latin name.

Did you even read what I wrote?
I didn't write down your latter part, and just because I loathe it doesn't mean I'm going to be upset about it. I just don't like it, that's all.

What about animals being named bazinga? Or other nostalgia memes? I personally like odd names. There's a species of fish in my area called slippery dick. The best name I've heard for an animal is a hellbender. Those things would be shit without their name.

You do realize that african wild dogs are not actually canids, right? They just have the common name of "dog" painted onto them by wildlife conservationists as a PR campaign to prevent the locals from killing entire packs in order to protect their livestock.

It's in the canidae family, though.

I thought that was the very definition of a canid.
