Celine, Abbey and all the other animal lovers out there

I've just found a terrific page full of pics of maned wolves.

This link puts the others to shame!!!

If you still haven’t fallen in love with the maned wolf seeing the other pics I’m sure you will now!!!

Maned wolf (Abbey, you’ll get an idea of his size if you take a look at this one)

Maned wolf stalking (see this pic to understand why his name in english is maned wolf. He has a kind of black mane around his neck)

Moderators, please, do not merge the two threads on maned wolves because if you do not everybody will know I posted new pics.

If you do merge them please keep this one as the title.

As someone who’s already seen more than 10 maned wolves in captivity and in the wild (national parks), I have to say that “a great painting of one” is the understatement of the year.

I felt like I was in front of a real maned wolf.

Your friend is an extraordinary artist.

Congratulations!!!

Abbey,

I put my money where my mouth is to avoid its extinction.

Each semester, I give 100 dollars to an organization dedicated exclusively to the study and preservation of the maned wolf.

I also give 200 dollars to the international organization WWF dedicated to the protection of endangered species all over the world.

It’s a small but heartfelt contribution.

As a 37 year old bachelor, with no kids, who already saw his fair share of maned wolves I can tell you I don’t do it for me.

I do it for your daughter and future grandchildren.

As I said, I just can’t conceive a world where they will have only stuffed maned wolves and linxes to admire (like the lovely family posted by Stephanie).

But I’m an optimist... I believe that in the end, life will triumph over death, good will triumph over evil and the maned wolf and the north american linx will be with us in the future... beautifying our planet for many, many centuries.

Wow... I would never have thought this animal was a wolf... it looks a lot like a red fox.

Beautiful animal. :)

This woman is a fabulous artist!
Hi Joz....
I have painted wildlife myself and feel like I'm in kindergarden playing with finger paints next to her. Hopefully we will be seeing more work from her soon. That red wolf, under good lighting, is better than a photograph. The snout actually looks like it is coming out of the canvas. What sets her apart from most is her mastery of light and shadow. When I saw the painting in person I couldn't stop looking at the mouth....the light hitting the tongue, the shadows cast...perfect!

You actually remember who I am??? ;)
Does she sell her paintings? I'd love to have the bottom wolf. My brother would go absolutely crazy over it.
