A rare sighting

We have two of the most endangered animals in North America right here at the Museum. Out in Explore the Wild the very lovely yet overwhelming spring growth has made it super hard to spot them in their exhibit. I’m talking about our Red Wolves. They both spend most of their time high up on the cliff making it hard to see their beautiful facial markings and strong lean muscles. In the mornings before we open, us Keepers get a chance to view the wolves up close while they are roaming their exhibit. I really wanted to share them with you. Click on the pictures below to enlarge them.

Our male red wolf #1369
Our female red wolf #1287

You can compare the female’s current picture with her false pregnancy picture here or to her shaved neck picture here.

Searching for their food enrichment

The pictures above and below are taken in the same spot, can you tell which wolf is which?

    No one took a guess at which wolf is which (the last two pictures)
    The male is the top pic and the female is the bottom

      It was obvious to me Kimberly. You can see the dark tear stains on the female in the bottom photo (and the interesting shaved neck area). Therfore, the top photo had to be the male- his head shot looked like him too, to me.
