The life of a Wolf

Wolves are the largest members of the dog family. They may weigh from 19 to 80 kgs and they are best spotted in a pack of wolves. 
Though wolves almost never attack people, they are recognized to be one of the most fearsome animals.

They attack domestic animals therefore a wide number of animals have been spotted to be shot because of that reason.

Wolfpacks are established according to a strict hierarchy, with a dominant male at the top and his mate not far behind.
Usually, this male and female are the only animals of the pack to breed.
All of the pack's adults help to care for the young and little pups by bringing them food and watching them while others hunt.

A wolf can live up to 13 years in the wild, however, the average is only 6-8 years.
Their fur color varies from gray, tan and brown to pure white or black.
They can run as fast as 35 mph
They hunt other animals, using their highly developed smell and hearing.

A single wolf howls to attract the attention of his pack, 
When all the pack of wolves howl, it's becauce they may be sending a territorial message to another pack.
Some howls are confrontational. It may sound similar to a dog's bark and this may simply begin because a nearby wolf has already
begun doing it.
