Wolf Hygiene 101
Beyond their importance as a critical keystone species, wolves can be pretty cute too!
Ambassador wolf Alawa is doing an adorable job of demonstrating a face wipe. She just completed eating her meal (the leg of a road-killed deer) so, by rubbing her head in the snow, she’s cleaning her face of blood and debris. Plus, it looks like it feels really good too!
If you want to watch Zephyr, Alawa, Nikai, Atka or the WCC’s critically endangered Mexican gray wolves or red wolves in live time, visit our live wolf webcams. If you see something cool, let us know!
