"Mom, Mum, Mommy..." The five American Red Wolf pups love to follow their mom around. ❤️

The critically endangered American Red Wolf pups, born at our offsite facility, just turned three months old and continue to thrive.
Pupdate! The critically endangered American Red Wolf pups, born at our offsite facility, just turned three months old and continue to thrive. With just 20-22 American Red Wolves left in the wild in eastern North Carolina, our commitment to their recovery is unwavering.
Watch as Pepper, the adorable one-month-old sea lion pup, nurses from her caring mom, Eloise. California sea lion pups can nurse for up to one year and completely depend on their mothers for the first six months. Nursing helps the pups grow quickly because sea lion milk contains about 35% fat.
