THE TORONTO ZOO IS NOW HOME TO (AT LEAST) SIX NEW ARCTIC WOLF PUPS

For the first time in 15 years a litter of six Arctic wolf pups have cautiously emerged from their den to see the world. They’ll only come out for short periods of time “until 8 to 12 weeks after they were born,” said Zoo spokesperson AMANDA CHAMBERS.

They’re protected by their mother, DORA. A second wolf, named AUNT VERA, is allowed to babysit the litter, while the father, IMIQ, patrols the perimeter of the den.
