Why, it’s 1414 howling!

If you’re lucky enough to be in Explore the Wild when the wolves start to howling you’ll get quite a thrill. It’s both thrilling and chilling to experience these wolves doing what they used to do in the wild many years ago throughout the Southeast. The only place in these parts that you can experience Red Wolves howling nowadays, without treking out to Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in Eastern North Carolina, is right here at the Museum, and ‘ol 1414 and 1287 (male and female respectively) seem to enjoy the howl!

  1. And it doesn’t matter how long an Animal Keeper has worked here, everyone of us stops in our tracks when we hear the wolves howl and a huge smile comes over our faces. I’ve heard them 3 times this week already. Early Sunday mornings and closed Mondays always offer the freedom for these wolves to howl.
