The Gray Wolf or Canis lupus is a canine native to the wilderness and remote areas of Eurasia and North America. It is the largest extant member of its family, with males averaging 95 to 99 lbs., and females 79 to 85 lbs. Like the Red wolf, it is distinguished from other Canis species by its larger size and less pointed features, particularly on the ears and muzzle. The Gray Wolf or Canis lupus winter fur is long and bushy, and predominantly a mottled gray in color, although nearly pure white, red, or brown to black also occur.

The Gray Wolf or Canis lupus is the second most specialized member of the genus Canis, after the Ethiopian wolf, as demonstrated by its morphological adaptations to hunting large prey, its more gregarious nature, and its highly advanced expressive behavior.

It is nonetheless closely related enough to smaller Canis species, such as the eastern wolf, coyote, and golden jackal to produce fertile hybrids. It is the only species of Canis to have a range encompassing both the Old and New Worlds, and originated in Eurasia during the Pleistocene, colonizing North America on at least three separate occasions during the Rancholabrean.

The Gray Wolf or Canis lupus is a social animal, traveling in nuclear families consisting of a mated pair, accompanied by the pair’s adult offspring. The Gray wolf is typically an apex predator throughout its range, with only humans and tigers posing a serious threat to it. It feeds primarily on large ungulates, though it also eats smaller animals, livestock, and carrion.
