By the late 1970’s it was thought to survive in only four populations – in the Simien Mountains and northeastern Shoa in the […]

Red Wolf – History of Distribution

Red Wolf - History of Distribution

At one time, the red wolf’s historical distribution was believed to have been limited to the southeastern USA – from Florida to east-central Texas, including southeastern Tennessee, Alabama, and most of Georgia and Florida, and as far north as southern Illinois. On the basis of further study, its historic range is now thought to have […]

Red Wolf - Data on Biology and Ecology

Size and Weight: Head and body length: 1 – 1.2 m (3.25 – 4′); weight: 18 – 41 kg (40 – 90 lb) Habitat: Given their wide historical distribution, red wolves probably utilized a large suite of habitat types at one time. The last naturally occurring population utilized coastal prairie marshes. However, this environment probably […]
