Did you know that wolves are the largest members of the canid (dog) family? They are intelligent creatures who work together in packs when scavenging for food and will consume anything from small rodents to large mammals. Approximately 78,000 wolves inhabited North America in the early 21st century. Wolves can endure severe arctic temperatures and the largest of the lot are found across Alaska, northern Asia and western and central Canada.
