The Wolf

Wolves are related to one of our favorite pets-dogs. But wolves aren't tame and cuddly. Wolves have forty-two sharp teeth and powerful jaws. Wolves run fast and travel in packs. A wolf pack is a group of six to ten animals that live and hunt together. When they team up, a pack of wolves can easily bring down prey more than ten times their size. It is not unusual for a wolf pack to kill deer, elk, and moose.

At one time, wolves could be found all over North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Sadly, their heyday is long gone. Unrestricted hunting and the destruction of their habitats has almost wiped out the entire wolf population. Today, they are endangered.
