Facts about Gray Timber wolves
• Man is the wolf's worst enemy and most subspecies of wolves are in danger of extinction. The Arctic wolf has escaped the plight of man by living in places so cold and miserable most creatures would not want to live there.
• A female Arctic wolf if ready to mate and have puppies at two years of age.
When the ground is too frozen for her to dig a den, she will be forced to return to an old den in a cave or rock cleft.
•The cubs are born deaf, blind, and helpless. They are totally dependent on their mother, and she relies on her mate to bring her food. After a month, the cubs are able to eat meat. From then on, the whole pack shares the job of feeding them with regurgitated meat from a kill.
• When the pack goes out to hunt a young adult wolf is left to baby sit the puppies.
