Wolf description

This camera overlooks a pack of wolves living at the International Wolf Center in northern Minnesota. Four wolves move in front of the camera: Axel, Grayson, Denali and Bolz. From the north side of the wolf area, you can watch the wolves interact, eat and travel across 1,25 acres, which includes two dens, a filtered pond and a wooded area. Even in captivity, wolves can be elusive, so if you don't see them right away, take a close look at the background under the trees. Your patience will be rewarded.
Two wolves are from Arctic subspecies: Axel and Grayson. They are white and are 4 years old.
Boltz is brownish-white and represents subspecies of Great Plains. He is 8 years old.
Denali is a representative of the subspecies Rocky Mountain. He is gray and white and is 12 years old.

Wolf is the largest representative of dogfish, weighs 35 to 52 kg. It is long 150 to 190 cm and high 65 to 80 cm. Females are smaller - weigh about 25% less than males. There are large differences in weight and size among the different subspecies of the wolf. For example, the red wolf (Canis Rufus) living on the lower Mississippi can weigh only 15 kg. The width of the wolves is also influenced by the latitude - the more northerly they live, the greater they are (Bergman's rule). The only exception to this rule is the Arctic wolf (Canis Lupus Arctos), which, despite being on the north, is smaller than the wolves living in the north of Canada and Alaska. The amount of prey in the area where they live is also affected. Logically, the more booty the bigger the wolves will grow. The full-size wolf reaches the age of about 1 of the year.

Wolves, like dogs or cats, are sensitive to vibrations and can recognize the approaching earthquake several days before it arrives. According to the intuition he can communicate with other members of the pack. There are always two "Alpha wolves" in the pack. They can have chicks. The other members of the pack are taking care of the youngsters. The mother grows in the mother's body 62 days, two months. During the first week, they are blind, and later begin to see.

When a wolf dives on a male "alpha wolf" and defeats him, alpha becomes a loner and the wolf becomes an alpha wolf. The defeated wolf becomes a "solitary" wolf and lives alone. Exceptionally, the wolf will accept another pack.
