Where do Mexican gray wolves live?

Mexican wolves are found in a variety of habitats, including mountain woodlands and the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts. There was once many of them, but now there are only a few hundred left. In 1998, scientists brought wolves from zoos in Mexico and the United States to put them back into the wild places where they once roamed free!

Mexican wolves are smart!
They can roam hundreds of miles and never lose their way.

They work together in packs to survive. Pups grow up with lots of help from their pack and then move on to find new friends and form new packs.

And the pups are soooooo cute!
