Wolves have better teeth – level 3

02-11-2023 07:00

The endangered red wolf, a unique species found only in the United States, is making a slow comeback, thanks to a breeding and reintroduction program.

The Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington, is playing a crucial role by providing dental care to these wolves because broken teeth can hinder their ability to eat properly. There are only around 270 red wolves left, with most of them in managed care or zoos, while only 20 live in the wild in eastern North Carolina. During recent checkups, the zoo’s veterinarians conducted dental cleanings and x-rays for the wolves, ensuring their overall health. Wolves in managed care live longer due to regular exams and dental care.

Red wolves were once widespread but faced a decline in the past. Now, efforts are being made to protect and reintroduce them into the wild.

Difficult words: crucial (necessary), hinder (to make something difficult to happen).
