How Do Wolves Stay Cool in the Summer Heat?
August 9, 2018 | Uncategorized
With temperatures reaching over 90°F, the wolves have been all tongues this week…
Wolves (like dogs) will stay cool by panting to evaporate heat and moisture off their tongue. Panting is especially effective for wolves. A wolf’s elongated muzzle and the shape of the inner nose serve as an efficient cooling system. Wolves also alter their patterns of activity, staying hunkered down during the hottest times of the day.
Stay cool, everyone!
