"THE CREETING" Cropped on right edge.

Kathleen V. Butts Wilife Artist
A "resting site" is where the pups may remain for several days while the adults hunt. Large areas of vegetation maybe leveled, due to the pups activities. Overhanging banks may have tunnels dug deep within for the pup's safety and for staying warm or cool during the summer. When begging for food the pups mouth the muzzle of the adult as you see Tunrack doing. He was born in the spring of 1986 to Zane and Nehani, a long time resident pair at our Oregon Zoo. This painting is a permanent collection at The World Forestry Center, Portland, Oregon
