Four endangered red wolves have a new home at the birthplace of the Carolinas.
    
A red wolf habitat at the Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site in Charleston opened to the public on Tuesday. The wolves came to South Carolina from the Trevor Zoo in Millbrook, N.Y., where they were born last year.
    
It's the first time red wolves will be displayed at Charles Towne Landing, where the Carolina Colony was founded in 1670.
    
The park's animal forest displays animals that would have lived along the South Carolina coast when the colony was founded.
    
At that time, red wolves were abundant. But over the centuries, their numbers were decimated because of hunting and loss of habitat.
    
Experts believe only about 320 red wolves remain.
