Denver Zoo Celebrates Birth Of 3 Maned Wolf Pups

DENVER (AP) — The Denver Zoo is celebrating the birth of three maned wolf pups — two males and one female.

The pups were born May 1 to mother, Adrianna, and father, Inigo, and are the first of their species to be born at the zoo since 2009. The pups have not yet been named.

Zoo officials say maned wolves resemble red foxes with long legs. But they are not related to foxes, and despite their name, they are not members of the wolf family.

Standing about 3 feet tall at the shoulder, the maned wolf is the largest wild dog of South America.
