Red Wolves Are Curious Kiddos


Wolves are not only intelligent, they can be playful and have a natural sense of curiosity. Their curious nature, however, comes second to their neophobia - a fear of anything new. This behavior makes many nonlethal management tools like fladry (fencing with strips of fabric or colored flags that will flap in a breeze) possible for wild wolves. Watch the nine-month-old critically endangered red wolves approach the camera with both interest and trepidation.
