Why stand up when you can howl lying down? Meet Alawa and Zephyr.
This lovable pair of gray wolves have actually been caught on video camera howling as lazily as they could whilst they took among their daily naps.
Alawa and Zephyr stay in the Wolf Conservation Center, a non-profit organization in South Salem, New York.
When you imagine wolves howling, you possibly conjure an image of them under a full moon, majestically howling with their head held high. Well, not these two!
The duo are too lazy to stand, so instead, they tilt their heads to the side and also let out a howl.
Both are ambassador wolves, which means that their work is to aid educate the public about wolves and the crucial role they play in nature’s community.
As quickly as one more wolf starts howling in the distance, they respond.
You might be amazed to learn that the howling takes place for over two minutes, after which they get right back to snoozing!
Bored Panda talked to Maggie Howell of the Wolf Conservation Center about what a normal day for a wolf in their shelter looks like. She had this to say:.
” For wild wolves, every day is about survival. Wolves rely on each other to function, grow, and survive.”.
” As extremely social animals, wolves live in structured family called packs. Cooperative living gives wolf families a variety of benefits. Teamwork facilitates successful searching, dog rearing, territorial protection, and also more.”.
” Although our ambassador wolves aren’t toughing it out on the wild landscape, almost everything they do together.
” They play together, sing together, groom each other and most importantly, love together.”.

Howell explained why the wolves howl for so long:.
” They probably could not resist responding to one of the other 40 wolves who call the Wolf Conservation Center home.”.
