On the morning of May 2, 2015 critically endangered red wolf F1563 (a.k.a. Salty) gave birth to a litter of pups – a valuable contribution to the recovery of her rare and at-risk species. The litter consists of 5 boys and 1 girl and it comes as no surprise that one is smaller than the rest. The runt is noticeably behind his siblings in re: to his physical development, but his personality doesn’t match his stature. He might not be able to climb as high or run as fast as his litter-mates yet, but he knows how to score some one-on-one time with Mom and melt the hearts of the hundreds who affectionately call him “Peanut” while watching his progress via webcam.
