WOLVES

Wolves are carnivorous, nocturnal mammals. They mostly eat moose, elk and deer, but sometimes they eat smaller animals like rodents, kind like when we have snacks.

Wolves live in groups called packs. These packs are usually made up of  an Alpha  male and female and their cubs. There are usually 6-7 wolves in a pack but sometimes there can be up to 15.

There are 8 different species of wolves. Here are 3 of them:

        Hi Jack and Zach,
        Wolves are my favourite animal. Sometimes I wish I grew up with them like in books. If you want any good books the Irina trilogy is good, I think the school library has it. Stay posted for more wolf info. By the way what is your favourite wolf species?

        Hi Hanna,
        I also like the grey wolf because of the colour of their fur and their size. The tundra wolf sounds really interesting! Is there any chance you could post some more information on them?
