Wolf is the largest member of the dog family. When people mention these animals, the first thing that goes through their mind is a true and natural leader, along with their well-known howling. Wolves use it to communicate and send territorial messages.
Wolves and humans-stormy history.
Although they live in parts of USSR, North America and Eastern Europe, the synergy between them and people lasts for centuries. But today, wolves almost never attack people, they have a reputation of the most fearless rascals because they attack domestic animals.
The wolf pack.
These magnificent animals live and and hunt in packs which contains six to ten animals. Like elephants, they also cross over large distances, up to 12 miles a day. These highly social animals hunt large pray, such as deer, elk, and moose. A single animal can consume up to 20 pounds of meat. But, they will also eat smaller mammals, birds, fish, lizards, snakes, and even fruit.
The wolf family is firm and stable.
A pack of wolves is organized by strict hierarchy, with a dominant male at the top, with his female who is not far behind. Usually, only two of them are the ones that breed. The family is here to support each other, hunt together, and look after the young pups by bringing them food and take care of them while others hunt.
Wolves are extremely long.
Exactly, wolves are as long as really tall people. The average female can be 4.5 to 6 feet from nose to tail, while males can grow up to 6.5 feet in length. They can be very fast, sprinting from 36 to 38 miles per hour for short distances. Although wolves are not natural sprinters, they are true marathon runners, tracking and tracing their preys for hours well into the night.
Wolves have a high IQ and excellent sense of hearing and smell, all of which they put to good use in rounding up their next meal.
True love-wolves will die for each other.
This is another animal of which can we learn a lot about true love and family. Wolves develop strong social bonds for their family and loved ones, even sacrifice themselves for the survival of the pack. Once they find a mate they tend to stay together for better or worse, through sickness and health, often until death due them part. Good thing to remember, don’t you think?
