RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Metro Richmond Zoo announced it has named its two six-month-old wolf pups Sirius and Remus.

Sirius is a black wolf and Remus is a blond/brown wolf. The Zoo said the two children are almost as big as their parents Nitka, a white wolf, and Voodoo, a gray wolf. Luckily, since all the wolves are different colors, so they can be easily identified that way.

The two 6-month-old pups were named after characters from the children’s book and movie series Harry Potter. In the series, Remus Lupin was a werewolf and Sirius Black would transform into a black dog during full moons to keep Lupin company.
