75-100 red wolves in the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge       ---- Near entrance to Outer Banks Fox, Labrador, Coyote, Wild Wolf, Red Wolf, Coyotes, Wolf Dog, Wolf Spirit, Wolf Hybrid

As their name suggests, red wolves are known for the characteristic reddish color of their fur most apparent behind the ears and along the neck and legs, but are mostly brown and buff colored with some black along their backs. Intermediate in size to gray wolves and coyotes, the average adult red wolf weighs 45-80 pounds, stands about 26 inches at the shoulder and is about 4 feet long from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail.
