John Latimer and Heidi Holtan welcome John’s grandnephew Ames Davis to the Tuesday Morning Show to talk about wolves.  Ames is a 15-year-old ninth grader from St. Louis Park, MN.  He tells us how his interest in nature started by studying dragonflies and other insects and how his focus is now on larger animals, primarily the gray wolf.  He informs us there are about 30 subspecies of wolves recognized today.  Ames tells us about the characteristics of the eastern gray wolf found in our area.  He talks about the size, color and weight and lets us know their primary prey is beaver and whitetail deer.  He informs us the gray wolf is 25% coyote, John and Ames talk about differences between wolves and coyotes, and how to recognize them in the wild.
