Red Wolves have a body length between 1 and
1.2 m (3.25 - 4 ft), a tail length between 25 and 35 cms (10 - 14 inches) and they weigh between 18 and 41 kgs (40 - 90 lbs). Their coat is tawny and grey in colour and it is darkest on their back.
Red Wolves used to be found from central Texas to southern Florida but they are now extinct over much of their range. A population of Red Wolves was reintroduced to North Carolina in 1988.
Red Wolves mainly feed on deer, rabbits, hares, rodents, wild pigs, raccoons and birds.
After a gestation period of 60 - 63 days, a litter of 4 - 7 cubs are born in a den.
There are no living subspecies of the Red Wolf.
Canis rufus floridanus has been extinct since 1930 and Canis rufus gregoryi was declared extinct in 1970.
There are fewer than 100 Red Wolves left in the wild.
