The Gray Wolf or Grey Wolf 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 lb., and females 79 to 85 lb. More than thirty subspecies of Canis lupus have been recognized, including the dog and dingo, though gray wolves, as popularly understood, only comprise naturally-occurring wild subspecies.

Canis Lupus 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 very large prey, its more gregarious nature, and its highly advanced expressive behavior.

Of all members of the genus Canis, the wolf is most specialized for cooperative game hunting as demonstrated by its physical adaptations to tackling large prey, its more social nature, and its highly advanced expressive behavior, including individual or group howling.

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 a social animal, traveling in nuclear families consisting of a mated pair, accompanied by the pair’s adult offspring.

The Gray Wolf or Canis lupus is typically an apex predator throughout its range, with only humans and tigers posing a serious threat to it.

Canis lupus primarily feeds on large ungulates, though it also eats smaller animals, livestock, carrion, and garbage.
