The culpeo (Lycalopex culpaeus), sometimes known as the zorro culpeo or Andean fox (wolf), is a South American species of fox. It is the second largest native canid on the continent, after the maned wolf. In 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 was domesticated to form the Fuegian dog, but this became extinct some time between 1880 and 1919. It was described by Molina in 1782 as Canis culpaeus. Later it was transferred to the genus Lycalopex. In the middle of the decade of 2010 could be found written like Pseudalopex culpaeus, synonymous of the accepted name. Order: Carnivora, Family: Canidae, Synonyms: Pseudalopex culpaeus, Dusicyon culpaeus, Canis culpaeus.
