A Lesson in Wolf Conservation

WC01

Recently we visited the California Wolf Center in Southern California.  They help educate folks about North American wolves.

We learned about the history and biology of wolves.  For instance, wolves normally live in packs.  Within the pack, there is an order — the leader is called the alpha.

The Wolf Center also had a collection of wolf skulls on display.  Notice the sharpness of their canine teeth.  Wolves are definitely carnivores, as their teeth indicate.
