Boliva (for Bolivia)

Having a rough Monday? This little fellow wants to cheer you up. See more photos of this maned wolf and his sister on the Houston Zoo’s website.

The puppies Dora and Diego were born on December 30. Sadly, these beautiful wolves are endangered and tend to breed poorly in captivity, for reasons unknown. The Huston Zoo is studying their wolves to better understand the conditions they need in the wild.

Maned wolves are native to the grasslands, savannahs and prairies of South America. Bolvia is a high probability typo for Bolivia, where you might find maned wolves in their natural habitat.
