The direct inspiration for Animan wolf jewelry are the wolves of the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, New York.  These include the "ambassador wolves," Canadian/Rocky Mountain Gray Wolves Alawa and Nikai, beloved past Ambassador Grey Wolf Zephyr and Arctic Wolf Atka, as well as the Mexican Gray Wolves and Red Wolves that make their home at the WCC.  You can see these majestic animals yourself by visiting the WCC in person or virtually via the wolf webcams at http:// .
