RED WOLF

The Red Wolf is one of the lesser known wolf species native to North America. They once roamed throughout much of the southeastern United States but have been eliminated from almost all of their natural range.





Red wolves average between 55 and 80 pounds, somewhat smaller than the better known gray wolf, but larger than the coyote which it resembles. Red wolves also have a more slender build and longer legs than gray wolves. Although many red wolves have a reddish cast to their fur, some do not. The general coloration is a blend of cinnamon-brown, black, and grayish-brown. Males are generally larger than females.
