The Metro Richmond Zoo Is Delighted To Announce The Birth Of Two Wolf Puppies.

Two gray Wolf Pups came at the Metro Richmond Zoo on April 4th. This is Nitka and Voodoo’s first litter, and all of the puppies are boys. One of the pups is black, while the other is brownish-gray in hue. Gray wolves come in a variety of colors, including white, gray, brown, black, and even a combination of two or more.

Nitka needed a safe place for her offspring, so she dug a burrow beneath the roots of a massive tree a few weeks before giving birth. Nitka gave birth to her pups in this 3 foot deep den, and Voodoo did everything he could to protect his family.

Gray wolves can be found in North America. Forests, grassland, tundra, woodland, and desert regions are just a few of the ecosystems they may survive in.

In wooded places, the howl of a gray wolf can be heard from a distance of seven miles. They also mate for the rest of their lives. A wolf pack can range in size from two to fifteen members. Over the years, it has evolved into an alpha male, alpha females, and their pups.

Wolf pups have their eyes closed and are unable to hear when they are born. As a result, they demand continual supervision at first. At this stage, they also nurse 4-5 times each day.

All of the puppies were able to get their checkups nine days after their birth. The black puppy weighed 3.3 pounds, while the brown-gray one weighed 3.8 pounds, and they were all in good health!

The cute puppies opened their eyes after two weeks, which helped them learn to walk and stand. They were soon able to hear as well.

The adorable Gray pups are now safe in the zoo, and visitors are welcome to come see them!
