Denver Zoo Welcomes Two Maned Wolves [PICTURES & VIDEO]

The Denver Zoo has welcomed two new Maned wolves that look a little bit like foxes. 


Denver Zoo

Denver Zoo visitors will now notice a couple of new, young maned wolves in the Wolf Pack Woods exhibit. The two youngsters are now exploring the yard for the first time this weekend after arriving from other zoos. The energetic, red-haired pair is made up of male, Inigo, and female, Adrianna. Visitors can see them bounding about their area now, weather permitting.

Inigo comes from Texas' Abilene Zoo, where he was born in December 2011. Adrianna comes from Springfield, Missouri's Dickerson Park Zoo, but was born at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, near Glen Rose, Texas in February 2012. They both arrived at Denver Zoo this September and spent the last couple months behind-the-scenes clearing a mandatory quarantine period, getting to know their new home and each other.

 

Maned wolves resemble red foxes with long legs. Despite their reddish coloring and general appearance they are not related to foxes and despite their name, they are not members of the wolf family. The maned wolf is the largest wild dog of South America.

Denver Zoo Teams Up With Sniffer Beagle To Determine If Polar Bear Is Pregnant

Is Cranbeary, the polar bear at the Denver Zoo pregnant? Well, maybe! Could a dog have the answer to that question? Well, yes, a beagle, named Elvis, might be able to help determine if a polar bear is pregnant!

Denver Zoo hopes that 11-year-old polar bear, Cranbeary may be expecting.

Worldwide, traditional methods of pregnancy detection, such as progesterone monitoring and ultrasound examination, are not effective at diagnosing pregnancy in polar bears. So scientists at Cincinnati Zoo's Center for Conservation & Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW) have gotten creative. In collaboration with professional dog trainer, Matt Skogen, owner of Iron Heart High Performance Working Dogs and a beagle named Elvis, CREW is trying to determine if the sensitive noses of canines can distinguish a pregnant polar bear from a non-pregnant bear simply by smelling fecal samples.

Over the next two weeks, Elvis will be testing and double-testing samples to come up with predictions for this cubbing season.

Converting Your Summer Closet to a Winter Wardrobe

While it's fun to splurg on some new trends for fall and winter, no one likes starting from scratch when it comes to your closet. Here are some tips to help convert your summer clothes to winter weather-friendly looks that will make you a year round fashionista! 

Tights
Before you put away those dresses and skirts, try pairing a couple with tights. This won't work with every sundress you have, but you'll be surprised how many outfits take on a whole new and winter appropriate look with tights. Plus, you can get as creative and unique as you want with different textures and colors! AND don't forget that leggings work well too! 

Cover Ups
I know what you're thinking: "BRRRRR!!!" But I have one word for you...BLAZER, honey! Slap a blazer over your favorite tank and you've got a put-together, comfortable look for work or running errands on the weekend. This can also work with cardigans and sweaters! 

Color Scheme
Play up fall and winter colors! You know that deep maroon shirt or mustard yellow jeans that didn't look just right during summer? It's time to break those out! Just as spring is all about the pastels, the cooler weather of winter calls for darker color schemes to compliment your wardrobe. 

Scarves
With so many colors, patterns and ways to tie these things, I LOVE them! They are the perfect accesory to almost any outfit! I especially love pairing an infinity scarf with a staple like a V-neck T-shirt. Plus, they help keep you nice and warm! 

Shoes
DON'T try to prolong the lives of your wedges, peep toe pumps or sandals with socks. Bite the bullet and get some boots, booties, close toes heels or clogs for goodness sake!
