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 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.
