American red wolf pups born at North Carolina Zoo – Greensboro – Triad Business Journal

Five American Red Wolves, a critically endangered species, have been born at the N.C. Zoo as part of the zoo’s red wolf breeding program.The pups, three females and two males, were actually born April 15 as storms and a tornado swept through the Triad.The pups remained unharmed throughout the turbulent weather, and their mother is also doing well. Four of the pups were named Thor, Thunder, Hurricane (Cane) and Typhoon (Ty). The fifth was named Oklahoma (Oakley) for the Oklahoma–shaped white mark on her chest.The zoo has nicknamed the pups the “Fab Five” and are the offspring Ayita (female) and Finnick (male), both 6 years old.
