Interesting Facts about Wolves
Wolves hunt other animals for food. Their diet consists of moose, deer, and bison, among other animals. They always hunt in packs, never by themselves. Packs can be as small as two wolves or as large as 30, but they are usually made up of 6 to 8 wolves.
Did you know?
- On average, wolves live until they are 6 or 8 years old. They sometimes live until they are 13 years old.
- Wolves can sense other animals up to a mile away.
- Wolves have webbed toes that help them swim up to 8 miles at a time.
- Wolves can run as fast as 40 miles per hour, only for short distances.
- Howling is the way wolves communicate with each other. They howl to warn each other of predators, to find each other when they are alone, or to meet up when they are ready to go hunting.
Wolves have a sense of family. Their packs are made of a mother, father, and their offspring. The mother and father mate for life and take care of their offspring the way human parents take care of their children. The gray wolf and the red wolf are the only species that live in North America.
