South American Gray Fox ( Lycalopex griseus) 5 February 2015. Camino Dinamarquero-Ciake, Magallanes, Chile.

This individual seems to be shedding heavily. I originally thought this was a Culpeo (Lycalopex culpaeus) but it is apparently the smaller, slimmer Lycalopex griseus which is the expected species in steppe habitat.
