Why Are Wolves Good?
Cool Gray Wolf Facts
Wolves don’t howl at the moon. They howl to unify the pack or to warn other packs away.
And the pups are born both blind and deaf. All members of the pack work to feed them regurgitated food until they are about two months old.
In the US, we have two species of wolf, the gray wolf & the American red wolf. There’s a lot of misinformation that only one species, the gray wolf, exists but this is not true. The red wolf is a true, distinct species.
So how come gray wolves are white, black, brown & gray? Just like people with different hair colors, gray wolves come in a rainbow of shades.
