Artic White Wolf
Photograph - Photography
The arctic white wolf lives in the Canadian Arctic, parts of Alaska and northern parts of Greenland. These wolves have lived in North America for more than two million years. The arctic wolf can still be found over the whole of its original range, largely because, in their natural habitat, they rarely encounter humans. The arctic wolf is also not threatened. Because of their remote home, they are relatively safe from man's activities, in terms of hunting and habitat destruction.
The artic wolf's habitat is extremely harsh and remote. Few scientists venture into their world during the long, dark winter. Because of this, the details of their lives through much of the year are virtually unknown.
The arctic wolf can withstand the arctic weather, with their insulated fur. They survive in sub-zero temperatures for years. They can be in absolute darkness for five months per year. They can also be without food for weeks. Arctic Wolves travel in packs of 2 to 20. They live in small family groups. A breeding pair of wolves are an alpha male and female. The pack of wolves work together to feed and care for their pups. Lone arctic white wolves are young males that have left their pack to seek their own territory in the wild. They stay away from other wolves, unless they are able to mate. A lone arctic wolf will claim an abandoned territory by marking it with its scent. They then gather other lone wolves into its pack. When the female becomes pregnant, she leaves the pack to dig a den to raise the pups. If the ice is too thick, she will move to a cave.
This picture was taken at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science in Denver, Colorado.
