Fact of the Day: Wolf Babysitter

Since wolves almost always live in packs, it's common for one or two members of the pack to stay behind. They essentially "babysit" the puppies while their mothers and fathers are away.

I would not like to be the babysitter. Too much trouble can happen, even to wolves.

Isn't that wonderful to see that relationship among those we consider "wild"? Amazing interconnection. Thanks for popping by my blog and leaving birthday wishes for our Ria, too, Adam. Have a great Friday- Diana
