Atara has become somewhat of a celebrity herself. Supporters have watched her grow up. They have sent her notes and cards. Her picture is in most family vacation albums taken here at the zoo. They have enjoyed howling with her, watching her train and meeting her up close on encounters! Now she is mom! She had 9 adorable wolf pups. That means there is going to be plenty of wolf pup play going on at North Georgia Zoo. Wolf pups are born with eyes closed. They rely heavily on mom and her instinct to nurture and care for them. They are typically born grey, black or brown. Their colors change dramatically as they grow up. Stay tuned for updates on how they are growing and for wolf pup encounters starting.
