Valentine's Day: a time for flowers, romantic dinners, and, if you're a wolf intent on breeding, something a little different.
When red wolves F1387 and M1483 met at the Wolf Conservation Center only a few short months ago, they were a bit shy. That seemed quite natural, but we were very happy when we began to observe courtship signs such as following each other, parallel walking, and what seemed like flirtatious play. Lately though, the relationship appears to be progressing quite, uh, fluidly, as we've seen the two engage in double marking. It's no box of chocolates, but if it works we're all for it!
