Arctic wolves inhabit some of the most inhospitable terrain in the world where the air temperature rarely rises above -30 degrees C (-22 F ) and the ground is permanently frozen. They are one of the few species of mammals who can tolerate these harsh conditions. Arctic wolves are usually smaller than gray wolves, and also have smaller ears, slightly shorter muzzles, and shorter legs to reduce exposure to the frigid air.
Unfortunately, wolf pups have a mortality rate of between 30 and 60 percent. Several different threats exist that can stop them from reaching maturity. Some pups die of diseases, but it can be tough to find food in the wild so malnutrition and starvation are other common dangers. Young pups are also sometimes preyed upon by golden eagles or bears.
In places where the plants change colors throughout the year, the wolves that inhabit the area can have fur of many shades of color. In Wisconsin, wolf fur is usually gray or brown mixed with black, white and tan. During the winter, fur gets darker on the neck and rump. Wolf pups are born with fuzzy, dark hair.
Day 34- Wolf affection lies heavily in close tactility. By huddling up together and touching directly, wolves exchange positive feelings and make their bonds tighter. When a couple of wolves snuggle together in this manner, you may even notice one placing his head right on top of the other individual's neck.
Day 30- Black wolves were considered rare in France, but common in Southern Europe at the time, with black wolf populations south to the Pyrenees apparently outnumbering other color morphs. They also occurred in the mountains of Friuli (Italy ) and around Kotor (Montenegro ). All credit to original owners
