Taken in Quebec, Canada

“Though the same species as a Gray Wolf, Arctic Wolves generally are smaller than the “Forest Gray Wolves” (Arctic Wolves are sometimes called “Tundra Wolves”), being about 0.9 to 1.8 m (35 to 71 in) long including the tail, with the head and body measuring between 1 to 1.5 m (39 to 59 in); males are larger than females and are more aggressive. Their shoulder heights vary from 0.63 to 0.79 m (25 to 31 in), shorter than other wolf subspecies of similar mass, their ears are smaller to trap body heat and their muzzles are much shorter.12 The males weigh between 34 to 46 kg (75 to 100 lb) and females between 36 to 38 kg (79 to 84 lb) but may fall in the 45 to 70 kg (99 to 150 lb) range. During the winter, the Arctic Wolf grows a second layer of fur for protection during the harsh conditions that may occur during the season. Arctic Wolves are smaller than other wolves and have long, thick white fur. Like other wolves, they have strong jaws with sharp teeth, including long canine teeth which tear flesh. Wolves have very good eyesight, acute hearing, and a keen sense of smell which help them hunt." Wikipedia
