The Mexican wolf (Canis lupus baileyi) is the smallest subspecies of the gray wolf. An average female weighs 55 pounds and a male 65 pounds. Their coat is gray sometimes with a reddish tinge. There are no records of all black or all white Mexican wolves as there are in other subspecies of gray wolf. Historically the gray wolf was found over most of North American, Europe and Asia. The Mexican wolf is the most southerly subspecies of the gray wolf in North America. It was found in the arid grassland, woodland and forests of the southwestern U.S.A. and northern Mexico.
