The Ethiopian wolf is known as one of the world’s rarest canids. This particular species of wolf is only found in the areas of Africa, namely Ethiopia which is where their namesake comes from. Occasionally the wolves will band together to hunt young ungulates such as the duiker, mountain reedbuck and mountain nyala but for the most part the Ethiopian wolf is a solitary hunter.

Sixteen (16) species of rodent have been documented in the Bale Mountain highlands including the black-clawed brush-furred rat, the vlei rat, Blick’s grass rat and the wolves favorite food, the giant mole-rat.

This time, He actually got a good look at her.
