My how time flies. Our maned wolf “Pepper Trio”, Serrano, Tepin and Anaheim, were born a year ago on February 23, 2013. Come help them celebrate this Sunday, February 23 at 2:30 pm. Our keepers are making a special “cake” and will give them “presents”. Their keeper will be on hand to answer any questions. Each zoo visitor through the gate will receive a free maned wolf commemorative postcard (while supplies last).
History: Being the first of only two successful litters in the entire United States in 2013, our maned wolf family soon attracted international attention. The Brazilian conservation team of Rogerio Cunha de Paula and Adriano Gambariniflew in to Pueblo in April, 2013 to photograph our little pack for their upcoming book about maned wolves. Their book, “Stories of a Gold Wolf” which features photos of the Pueblo Zoo’s entire maned wolf family, was launched in December in Brazil. The book will be launched tentatively this spring in the United States. The Pueblo Zoo is proud to partner with their efforts through “Friends of the Maned Wolf”, a global campaign to raise awareness about conservation of the largest South American wild canid.
