Nikai the wolf puppy gets a case of the hiccups. But it doesn't look like they last too long!
Nikai is just 8-weeks-old and is staying at the wolf conservation group NY Wolf. He is the newest member of their Wolf Conservation Center’s Ambassador Pack.
Wolves can make a variety of vocalizations. They growl, whimper, whine, bark, huff, howl... Although the wolf's howl is has been the inspiration for films, essays, poems, etc... we think there is another sound that evokes equal levels of emotion and excitement - a wolf pup's hiccup!
Eight-week-old gray wolf pup Nikai is the newest adorable addition to the Wolf Conservation Center's Ambassador Pack in South Salem, NY! As an Ambassador, Nikai will help WCC wolves Atka, Zephyr, and Alawa open the door to understanding the importance and plight of their wild kin.
NOTE: The Wolf Conservation Center (WCC), founded in 1999 by Hélène Grimaud, is a private, not-for-profit environmental education organization located in South Salem, NY.
