The Celebrate Differences group went to Phillips Park Zoo in Aurora. One animal that we saw is the gray wolf.
The Wolf is the largest member of the canine family.
A Wolf’s lifespan is about 12 years in the wild, and up to 16 in captivity.
Wolves range in color from grizzled gray, to black to all white.
Wolves in the wild, prey on mammals such as Elk, Moose and Deer. They will also feed on smaller mammals such as Beaver and Rabbits.
Wolves live in packs with the Alpha Male and Alpha Female leading the packs.
Wolves communicate by howling (vocalizing), scent marking, body expressions, and facial expressions.
Wolves can weigh 55-130 pounds.
One part I did not like was the Lizard House. We saw 2 alligators, which was cool.
Alligator populations were once nearly wiped out due to excessive hunting.
In 1968, they were classified as endangered species.
Alligator teeth are often shed and replaced; old alligators may have had up to 50 sets of teeth.
Juveniles eat insects, fish and frogs while adults eat terrestrial prey that come within range.
A healthy alligator can go months without eating. They store fat in their bodies and tails.
American Alligators can be anywhere from 9-14 feet long.
I suppose I would go there again, but not with my mom.
none of the above
