The physical description of a wolf Gray wolves are slender, powerfully built animals with large, deeply descending ribcages and sloping backs.

Adult wolves are 105–160 cm (41–63 in) in length and 80–85 cm (32–34 in) in shoulder height

Gray wolves have very dense and fluffy winter fur, with short underfur and long, coarse guard hairs

Breeding info

In areas with low wolf densities, wolves are generally monogamous.[71] Mated pairs usually remain together for life if one of the wolves does not die

Multiple litters are rarely successful, due to infanticide by the pack's females.

Special behaviors

wolf packs are often portrayed as strictly hierarchical social structures with a breeding "alpha" pair which climbs the social ladder through fighting, followed by subordinate "beta" wolves and a low ranking "omega" which bears the brunt of the pack's aggression.

Weird info

Wolves howl to assemble the pack (usually before and after hunts), to pass on an alarm (particularly at a den site), to locate each other during a storm or unfamiliar territory and to communicate across great distances.
