It is very difficult to determine if a maned wolf is pregnant. They might not gain very much weight and there is currently no medical test that can be preformed to confirm pregnancy other than an ultrasound or X-ray. These tests are usually not preformed because they can cause too much stress to the animal. Pseudopregnancies are also common in canines. In a pseudopregnancy, the female may look pregnant, act pregnant, and even lactate while not actually pregnant.
Because of the uncertainty, we will start planning for possible pups and start counting down the gestation period so that we are prepared if puppies should arrive!
