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.
