Howling: Wolves howl as a signal to other wolves, telling of the beginning and ending of a hunt, of a wolf separated from its pack, as a warning to other wolf packs, and simply for the fun of it.
Anatomy: Red Wolves have a reddish coat that varies from light brown to almost black. Smaller than the closely-related gray wolf, the red wolf has long legs, long ears, a narrow head, and strong jaws with sharp teeth, including long canine teeth which tear flesh. Adults weigh from 45 to 80 pounds (20-36 kg). They have very good eyesight, acute hearing, and a keen sense of smell.
Hunting and Diet: Wolves hunt in packs and often prey upon animals that are much larger that they are. Red wolves mostly eat white-tailed deer and raccoons, but will eat almost anything, including birds, fish, snakes, lizards, and fruit. Wolves almost never attack people. They swallow food in large chunks, barely chewing it. When they return from the hunt, wolves regurgitate some of the food for the pups.
