Wolf Facts

In early history, wolves could be found across the world. But after agriculture development, they were extinct in many areas, so now they could be found only in the distant forests. Their size and weight depends on the place where they are found. The largest Wolves are in Belarus, Canada and Alaska. They can be 160cm long, plus tail is 52cm long and have weight of 80kg. The Wolves from Arabia are much smaller, they are 80cm long, the tail is 30cm long and they have weight of just 20kg. Females are usually 2-10% smaller than males and 25% lighter.

Wolves usually live in a pack, although you can see alone wolf sometimes. Their pack is made from one male, one female and their children, so it is a family. Alfa couple (Alfa male and Alfa female) is the leader of their pack and only they can reproduce. Mating period is once a year, and they start mating at the age 2. Female wolf is carry's for 60 days and after that usually gives birth to 5-6 cubs, although sometimes in their lair could be found 14 cubs.

Interesting fact about wolves is their need for plants, so they often eat plants, in order to gain needed vitamin. The main food is meat, adult wolf eats 2kg of meat per day, although it can eat up to 10kg of meat per day. But, they often do not have enough food so they are forced to starve.

Although, people believe that they run away from the humans, wolves are responsible for many attacks on humans. It is known that during cold and long winters wolves get into mountain villages and attack animals, usually sheep and pigs.
