The buss dug (Speothos venaticus) is a canid foond in Central an Sooth Americae.[1][2] In spite o its extensive range, it is very rare in maist areas except in Suriname;[2][3] it wis first identified bi Peter Wilhelm Lund as fossils in Brazilian caves an believed tae be extinct. The buss dug is the anly livin species in the genus Speothos,[1] an genetic evidence suggests that its closest livin relative is the maned wouf o central Sooth Americae.[4]

In Brazil it is cried cachorro-vinagre ("vinegar dug") or cachorro-do-mato ("buss dug"). In Spainyie-speakin kintras it is cried perro vinagre ("vinegar dug"), zorro vinagre ("vinegar fox"), perro de agua ("watter dug"), or perro de monte ("buss dug").
