ANIMALIA VERTEBRATA MAMMALIA CARNIVORA CANIDAE CANIS NIGER
Any person who has been able to catch a glimpse of any
type of wolf is indeed a lucky man. The wolf is one of the
earth's most cowardly and fearful animals, and it is so sly and,
pardon the expression, foxy, that it is almost a waste of time
to try and catch him in any kind of trap.
Although he can be cowardly and fearful, he can also be
one the most vicious and blood-thirsty of all animals. Often,
they simply kill as much prey as is possible, regardless of
hunger and appetite. This is done by 'hamstringing' their prey.
This leaves them helpless and unable to move. Then the wolf
pack can eat and tear him apart at their own will.
savage and bloodthirsty, wolves are among some of the world's
smartest and most perceptive mammals.
Wolves are found all over the world, and on almost every
major continent of the earth. The following wolves are types of
Gray Wolves (Canis lupus).
In eastern Europe the European Wolf (Canis lupus lupus) can
be found even though it used to roam most of western Europe as
well. In Spain, two wolves have also been identified-Canis lupus
deitanus and Canis lupus signatus. While the first is similar to
many of the other European wolves, the latter may be more
closely related to the jackal (Canis aureus), than to a wolf.
The Caucasion Wolf (Canis lupus cubanensis) is found in many
parts of eastern Europe and western Asia. The large tundra
wolf of eastern Asia, the Tundra or Turukhan Wolf (Canis lupus
albus), is very close in relations to the wolves...
