I don't know what it is about the skeletons that cause them to look like that under a camera flash... hence I tried not to use it too much, difficult as that is with so little ambient light to work with.

The Red Wolf (Canis rufus) is a North American canid that became became extinct in the wild by 1980. In 1987, there was a reintroduction in northeastern North Carolina through a captive breeding program and the animals are considered to be successfully breeding in the wild. The Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington, IL is one of only a few zoos in North America with successful breeding red wolves with litters twice in the past two years. There are now approximately 110 - 130 red wolves in the wild in North Carolina. Litters from the zoo are eventually released into the wild.

The Red Wolf has a coat that is long and coarse; mostly brown and buff colored on the upper part of the body with some black along the backs. Muzzle long; nose pad wide and black; ears rufous; legs long; tail long, bushy, black tipped. Body is intermediate in size between the gray wolf and the coyote.
