Their fur is made up of two layers, which makes it dense and luxuriant, and that is why the wolf continually rubs itself on rocks and branches to lose some of its furs. The coloration of this varies, can be white with gray, black, red, and brown, based on their habitat.
When they are puppies, the color of their eyes is blue, but as they grow, they change to golden-yellow or orange tones; very rarely, they keep the blue color.
The gestation period lasts from 60 to 63 days. Puppies, like most animals, are born small, weighing half a kilo, apart from being blind, deaf, and entirely dependent for up to three weeks.
Between four and six cubs can be born in a litter. This occurs in the mountains and near water sources so that the mother has easy access to this liquid.
After seven weeks, they move away from their families to begin exploring and roaming on their own in search of food. They are also instructed to howl according to their rank.
Interestingly, the cubs are protected and educated by a female that was chosen by the alpha female before birth. Depending on the breed of wolf, they decide whether the pack will be cared for by the cub or by the mother, so the alpha female must continue with her old tasks of leading the pack.
The diet of the wolves is varied; it includes sheep, goats, reindeer, moose, bison, horses, antelopes, salmon, seals, rodents, birds, and stranded whales. Cannibalism is applied when there is a shortage of food in the region.
