Red Wolves Respond to Alarm Call
September 20, 2019 | Uncategorized
These critically endangered red wolf pups, born in 2018 to parents Charlotte (F2121) and Jack (M1606), took notice when they heard a Mexican gray wolf’s alarm – and with good reason. Is danger near?
A howl’s long low pitch is well suited for long distance transmission. Wolves can howl to locate other wolves, advertise the size of their pack, and so much more over great distances. But when wolves seek to warn family members of danger, they bark-howl.
The pups have heard their parents bark-howl before, but what does it mean when neighboring wolves sound the alarm?
