ABILENE, Texas - The Abilene Zoo's maned wolf has a new mate.

Zoo staff has started getting its 10-year-old maned wolf, Rosita, acquainted with a new, younger male.

Four-year-old Christiano arrived from the Los Angeles Zoo in March and was specially selected for breeding purposes as its maned wolves are part of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums' species survival plan.

The Abilene Zoo lost their last male maned wolf back in May to old age. He was nearly twelve years old.
