Wolves have adapted to survive in some of the harshest environments on the planet. Their paws have adapted to have counter-current heat exchange – where the warm blood heading towards the paws is utilized to reheat blood that has been cooled by the freezing ground. Penguins use the same technique! This coupled with two exceptionally thick layers of fur allows the wolves to keep their internal temperature nice and toasty, despite the freezing temperatures.
This is just like Wolflabs range of refrigerators which use insulation and cooling systems to maintain a cool temperature inside regardless of the toasty laboratory environments.
We would like to thank Beth Auld from Sussex University for the above fun fact. The next product category will be safety cabinets. Can you think of a fun fact linking safety cabinets with wolves that can be made funny (or even remotely funny)? If we use your fun fact, we will be happy to send you a £50 gift voucher from a shop of your choice as thanks. Entries need to be received before 22nd February 2021.
