It’s a real thrill to have the privilege of experiencing the world of wildlife up close! An organisation for the protection of endangered wolves, the Voyageurs Wolf Project, decided on an extremely adventurous venture. They set up a camera near a wolf den to capture a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota is home to many wolves, but you will admit that until now you have not had the opportunity to hear the first wolf howl of a baby wolf only four weeks old. It was the first time the animal exercised its vocal abilities.
For a wolf, this will later be a communication skill of great importance to its pack. Wolves, like other wild animals, have their own “call” with which they communicate with each other. For wolves, howling is completely instinctive. They use this form of communication for many reasons. But for a small baby wolf, this howl is really impressive. Even though he is very small, his voice sounds really amazing and a bit fearless, doesn’t it?
“Listen to some of this wolf pup’s first howls from just a few weeks ago! “, the group wrote. “A little warning: this pup is pretty loud for only being 4 weeks old!”
“Wolves howl for more reasons than we’ll ever know,” National Geographic reports. “They even have daily howling choruses with their own packs, which can be a way to strengthen bonds between members.
The video also features another wolf standing in the background enjoying the sweet blueberries, and believe us, this behaviour is not typical in the world of wolves.
