This is our male Gray Wolf. The zookeepers tease that he walks on stilts because his legs are so much longer than the female's legs.
So where exactly do the tales of the big bad wolf come from? Look at this guy and tell me there is anything to be afraid of. If you went into his territory, he would go the other way. Of course, he doesn't really have a problem finding food, water, shelter or companionship. His life is quite idyllic compared to most wolves.
This is our female Gray Wolf standing in her favorite spot. It is pretty much the highest spot for her to survey her territory. She has a lot thicker coat than the male because he is from Southern California and she is from Montana. The question is once she sheds her Winter coat, how full will it grow in next year?
