If you've recently visited the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park recently, you may have noticed that every once in a while, two of the red wolves will take the time to patrol the fence between the two separate enclosures, and may even bark and growl at each other. It seems that the wolves are on the prowl and eager to start a fight. Have you ever wondered why this is?

During one of my trips to the Binghamton Zoo, I had the chance to talk to one of the zookeepers, who gave me more insight as to why the two red wolves keep getting territorial with each other and the reason is:  it's actually a family squabble much like the squabbles that human family members get into with each other.

According to the zookeepers that I spoke to, the two female red wolves, Miku and Piglet,  have decided to stake their claims along with the males they were paired with, and as such, become threatened thinking their sibling is trying to encroach on their territory.

It's actually pretty fascinating to sit back and watch, so be sure to take some time to visit the Binghamton Zoo and see for yourself! Before you visit though, be sure to take a look at the zoo hours and ticket price information.
