Adopt a gray wolf and you'll be helping to ensure the long-term survival of this important species. The gray wolf was once widespread across North America but is now found in isolated populations in only seven states: Alaska, Montana, New Mexico, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming. This species is also listed as endangered.
There are three types of wolves: alpha males, females, and pups. Alpha males are larger than females and range from 35 to 60 inches tall at the shoulder. Females typically weigh about 25 percent less than their male counterparts and range from 23 to 32 inches tall at the shoulder. Pups measure between 20 and 30 inches when born and can weigh up to 15 pounds each. They remain with their mother for two to four months before moving out into the world alone.
Wolves eat animals food, mainly elk and deer. They also eat birds, fish, amphibians, insects, and sometimes livestock. Although they prefer meat, they will also eat plants if other food is unavailable.

Skins with skulls are priced between $500 and $1,500 USD; live snow leopards are priced between $5,000 and $11,000 USD per animal. There are no official numbers available on the global trade in snow leopard parts, but according to Paolo Sama, director of the Snow Leopard Conservancy, it is "clearly significant".
Snow leopards have been traded for thousands of years across Asia, from Mongolia to India, for clothing, furniture, and even as bait for fishermen. In modern times, they are still hunted for their bones, which are used in traditional Chinese medicine; some estimates say up to 100 animals are killed for their bones each year. No accurate figures are available on the international market for snow leopard parts, but given the size of the species and the level of poaching, it is clear that it is worth killing them for profit.
The price of a snow leopard skin varies depending on the part of the animal being sold and its condition. Skins are usually divided into three main sections: head, tail, and body. The head contains only the top half of the skull and can be sold separately. The tail consists of the lower half of the skeleton with the skin attached and can be sold either separated from the body or not at all.
Adopt a Panther in BlackKits are excellent presents and can be delivered straight to the receiver. We'll even add a note from you indicating that the Adopt an Animal Kit was sent by you. Become a Black Panther adoptee. A black panther is the colloquial name for a black specimen (a genetic variety) of one or more cat species. There are four species of panther: puma, cougar, jaguar, and leopard.
Panthers are found in tropical and temperate regions around the world. They are solitary by nature, but male panthers may join together with other males to defend their territories. Female panthers usually stay alone except when raising young. Although they will sometimes team up with other females for protection, female panthers usually don't fight each other.
People have been creating panther displays since the 1500s. In these displays, a panther skin is used as a blanket or cape. Today, people still use panther skins to make clothing; however, they are more likely to buy pre-made costumes than wear them home made.
People often wonder if they can adopt a panther. Yes, you can adopt a panther! You can choose either a male or female panther from one of our partner shelters. Male panthers are available for adoption first because they need to be trained to accept being petted and handled. Females can be adopted later once they're used to humans being near them.

There are different ways to give money. Are you willing to drive some distance to donate? Some charities may accept phone donations, others only accept physical gifts. Before you know it, what started out as a good idea has turned into a big expense! Be sure to compare rates between banks before you deposit a check. Also, keep in mind that any gift card that you donate will lose its value quickly so donate those before they expire.
If you don't have time to research how much to give, then consider giving something inexpensive but meaningful instead. A couple of examples are: a meal out, a movie ticket, or a small toy for a children's shelter.
