WILDLIFE -- Desert Survivors: The Arabian Wolf

Without rain for six months each year and with temperatures reaching nearly 50 degrees Celsius, the Negev Desert in Israel is an inhospitable place to live. The Arabian wolf, the smallest member of the wolf family, is unique in that it does not hunt like other wolves that follow their prey for extended periods in packs. Due to a small population, researchers have attached transmitters to a mated pair to understand more about their behavior. This program closely follows the pair as they busily raise their offspring.
