Have you ever heard of a maned wolf? When Blue Bear and I visited the Houson Zoo, we saw one for the very first time. Maned wolves are native to South America, but are unfortunately endangered. An interesting tidbit is that maned wolves don’t live in packs like most wolves do, but are instead solitary animals. You can read about all this and more on the Houston Zoo’s article about them.

Here is a picture of some maned wolf pups born at the Houston zoo:
