(CRITICALLY ENDANGERED)Red Wolf

The Red Wolf (Canis lupus rufus) is a mammal of the order Carnivora. It once roamed throughout the Southeastern United States and is an ice age survivor of the Late Pleistocene epoch.[3] The Red Wolf has a reddish coat, silver-grey forehead and darker signs on white legs and a cream underbelly. The Red Wolf has long ears and smooth coat with long legs. It lives through the south-eastern parts of the United States, from Texas to Florida. A population is being reintroduced to North Carolina.[4] Scientists suggest that Red Wolf populations were extirpated from the wild in the southeastern United States and is now very endangered and slowly being reintroduced to its natural habitat.
