As you may already know, male Red Wolf #1414 has arrived at the Museum and is now on display. He’s not shy and, so far, has made himself available to visitors by frequently moving around the enclosure.
When he does lie down to rest it’s been on the ground level under the shrubs to the left of the waterfall. He’s also been seen at the top of the hill next to the fence, but if you can’t find him there look beneath the shrubs.
Here’s what he looks like:
Much heavier than the female, there should be little difficulty separating him from the female.
If size alone doesn’t help you distinguish the male from the female, the male has much more white on his face as well as on the inside of his legs.
Come on out and see the new addition to the Red Wolf Enclosure. If you can’t spot him right away, I’ll help you locate him.
