By whatsthatpicture from Hanwell, London, UK - Dina Sanichar, "wolf boy" of Sekandra, India, late 1800s, CC BY 2.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=35289754 Hand captioned "Wolf Boy, Senechar". Photo depicts Dina Sanichar, the wolf boy of Sekandra. This is one of a selection of lantern slides dating I estimate to c. 1900. However, Dina Sanichar died in 1895, so the original of this image at least must date from before then. The set appears to be a personal collection, with items connected to Northern Ireland, missionary work, the YMCA, and India.

Rarest animal – Red wolf

There has been some debate as to whether the red wolf is a hybrid of wolf and coyote, a subspecies of the gray wolf or its own distinct species. This has sometimes led to the red wolf being left off of the endangered species list.

An adult wolf needs to eat about 5-7 pounds of meat every day to maintain a healthy weight. Typically, a pack will kill a single large mammal and survive off the meat for several days before moving on to the next opportunity. The average wolf eats the equivalent of 15 deer across an entire year.
