Wolves can be some of the most beautiful animals. There are so many interesting facts about wolves and you may not even realize what some are. Did you know that wolves mate for life? How cool is that? There are wolves all over the world, but Carve Me A Bear! Chainsaw Carvings wants to make you aware of the three types that live in North America.
Gray wolfs are canines (all wolves are). They can grow to be bigger than your average large dog breed. Their bodies are about 5 feet long and they weigh an average of 60 – 100 lbs. for females and 70 to 145 lbs. for males. These wolves can have a similar look to a husky, with white, brown, or gray fur and long bushy tails. Gray wolves can live 8 to 12 years in the wild. In the past, wolves covered two-thirds of the United States. Now they are in Alaska, Yellowstone, and in most of the northern states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Montana, Idaho, and Oregon. These wolves do live in a pack of 2 to 15 wolves. Interesting fact the alpha male and female are the only ones that breed in the pack. This fact is also true for other types of wolves.
Eastern wolves, also known as timber wolves, are often mistaken for red or gray wolves because they are so closely related. They are on the smaller size of wolves and have long black fur when they are adults. When they are pups, they have brown and red fur. These wolves are sometimes thought to be coyotes because their size and coloring. They can be found by the great lakes, Minnesota, and Ontario area. Eastern wolves, like gray wolves, you will find in a pack. They are very loyal and do not like others around them. You can see them during the day, but they are most active at night howling to keep the other wolves away.
A red wolf is between the size of a gray wolf and a coyote. They weigh between 40-80 pounds. They look very similar to a German shepherd. With a brown, black and reddish fur. In the past, you would see the red wolf from Texas to Pennsylvania. Now you can find them in North Carolina’s Albemarle Peninsula. They like to live on coastal prairies, forests, and swamps. They live in packs just like the gray and eastern wolf, where their pack is between 5 to 9 wolves. The red wolves are now classified as critically endangered.
