A wolf with a mane that adorns its neck and shoulders and resembles not so much the mane of a lion as much as a horse is a real decoration of the animal world. This predator lives in South America – for the most part in the savannas, but it is also found in the pampas, in the high grass of the marshes, which are many in the territories of Northern Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil. This wild animal is very similar to a huge fox: it has a bright red hair, the same sly elongated muzzle, high ears. The wolf is light, lean: about one and a half meters long, as tall as a small dog – seventy, seventy-five centimeters at the withers, and weighs not so much as wolves of the northern hemisphere – only about twenty kilograms.

The protagonist accidentally pushed the animal with a shoe, and the honey badger became furious. I grabbed a dead grip and it was impossible to get rid of him. So the hero dragged him for many, many days in the desert. This dangerous animal did not let go of the shoe, even fainting from hunger and dehydration, and when it was possible to tear it off and go forward, the honey badger still got up and, stumbling and falling, ran after the hero.
