Grey Wolf

Canis lupus

Howling with the wolves

  • The largest known pack counted 37 individuals and was found in Yellowstone National Park in the early 2000’s.
  • The howl is specific to each individual and each pack, which allows them to communicate among their own pack and with others, warning them of their presence. A howl can be heard by another wolf up to nearly 10 km.
  • An endurance runner, the wolf can travel 72 km a day without stopping and it can run up to 64 km/h over short distances.
