Wild Canids of the World

If there is one wildlife family that's closest to mankind, it's the canids! Man's best friend, the dog itself, evolved from the largest wild canid, the Grey Wolf, and has another 35 of its wild cousins spread across the world except Antarctica. Canids are as diverse as they are adaptable, having evolved precise features to suit their lifestyles and habitats, such as the disproportionately large ears of the Fennec Fox to dissipate body heat in the desert, the dense white fur of the Arctic Fox that provides insulation against the Arctic winter, and the partially webbed feet of the Short-eared Zorro from the Amazon Basin that help the dog catch fish! While the Fennec Fox is the smallest wild canid in the world (and the Grey Wolf the largest), the Maned Wolf of South America holds the record for the tallest canid, owing to its abnormally long legs that help it navigate tall grass.

With Wildlife Week around the corner, Green Humour brings to you all the 36 wild canids of the world in one giant poster! Prints and a wide range of merchandise (tshirts, wall clocks, laptop skins, mugs and duvets) are available on my webstore here
