The Grey Wolf, also known as the Timber Wolf, is the largest wild member of the Canidae family. It shares a common ancestry with the domestic dog.
Though once abundant over much of Eurasia and North America, the Grey Wolf inhabits a very small portion of its former range because of widespread destruction of its habitat.
They are capable of covering several miles trotting at about a pace of 10 km/h (6 mph), and have been known to reach speeds approaching 65 km/h (40 mph) during a chase.
There is a slight webbing between each toe, which allows them to move easily over snowy terrain.
Occasionally, single Wolves are found in the wild, though packs containing 2 to 20 Wolves are more common. Established Wolf packs rarely accept strangers into their territories, and will often attack other Wolves that invade their domain. They howl as a form of cumminication to neighbouring packs so that they will avoid their territory. Distributed by Tubemogul.
