A little known and notoriously elusive wild dog from South America 3the enigmatic small-eared zorro Atelocynus microtis owes its common name to its fox-like appearance zorro is Spanish for foxas it has a long, slender muzzle, a dark, bushy tail and short, rounded ears 4 5.

The fur of the small-eared zorro is short and dense — either an adaptation to a habitat in which rain is frequent or to a partially aquatic lifestyle 4 — and is typically dark brown in colour, with scattered white hairs on the upperparts creating a grizzled appearance 6.

Some individuals may have small white patches on the throat and groin 6. Its movements are more graceful than those of most dogs, being more cat-like than canine 4. Due to its elusive nature, there is not a great deal of information on the small-eared zorro in the wild.

It is known to be a largely solitary creature, although it has been seen hunting in pairs, and while it is largely diurnal, it has also been observed active at night. It has an incredibly varied diet; it primarily eats fish but also consumes insects, mammals including agoutis, marsupials and small rodentsbirds, reptiles, frogs and fruit 5.

Based on the quantity of fish in its diet, combined with the partial membrane between the digits of its feet, the small-eared zorro is believed to be at least partially aquatic 3.

It is thought that the female small-eared zorro gives birth in May or June, using the burrows of other animals or hollow logs as a den for the young 5. The small-eared zorro inhabits undisturbed rainforest in the Amazon lowlands, where it is thought to favour areas close to rivers and creeks 5.

Although no diseases have yet been reported in the small-eared zorro, canine diseases are common amongst domestic dogs in the region and could feasibly be transmitted to the wild small-eared zorro, with potentially devastating consequences 5.
