April was a happy month at the North Carolina Zoo. Three pairs of red wolves had babies! There are 12 new pups in all.

About 20 wild red wolves live in North Carolina. Scientists say there may be no other wild ones in the world.

Read More: Three litters of American red wolves were born between April 28 and 30. There are eight girl pups and four boy pups in all. It will take time for the pups to have a reddish color on their ears, heads, and legs. (Red wolves are mostly brown and buff colored with some black along their backs.) The zoo hopes some of the wolves born in North Carolina will be released back into the wild. Wolves will not act like wild animals one day. Isaiah 11:6 says, “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb.”
