  1. Is that the local nickname? It was not shy? Posted 2 years ago
    1. It's the Spanish for fox - and how it was described to us & not shy at all - slunk away eventually but there was a lot of cover there Posted 2 years ago

The crab-eating fox , also known as the forest fox, wood fox, and the common fox, is an extant species of medium-sized canid endemic to the central part of South America, and which appeared during the Pliocene epoch. ''Cerdocyon'' comes from the Greek words ''kerdo'' and ''cyon'' referring to the dog- and fox-like characteristics of this animal.
