Artic Wolves (Canis lupus arctos) are very well adapted to their environment. They have pure white fur which helps them blend into their surroundings. They (of course!) live in the Arctic, above the 67 degree north latitude. Since snow and ice is hard to dig through, the Arctic wolf will make its den in a rocky outcropping. The scarity of prey in the arctic makes these wolves claim a much larger territory of well over 1000 square miles, much larger than their southern relatives. These wolves will eat Musk Oxen and arctic hare, but they will enjoy Peary caribou, ptarmigan, lemmings, seals, and nesting birds when they find them.
Depending on where they live, they average 100 - 175 lb and are typically 5 - 7 feet long from nose to tail tip.
