It's birthday season for wolves in North America so over the coming weeks we'll have a lot of celebrating to do! Today we honor a special litter of lobos: Happy B'Earth Day Mexican wolves M1139, M1140, M1141, F1143, F1144, and F1145!
On April 22, 2008, Mexican wolf F613 gave birth to 3 boys and 3 girls. A pile of pups.
June 26 - the pups get their first checkup and were assigned alphanumeric "names."
The leggy youngsters, not quite yearlings, enjoy their first winter.
Waiting for his opportunity to thrive on the wild landscape of the southwest.
