Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:

INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos)
Location: Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland
Size: 1.8 m long, 79 cm high weight: 75 kg
Diet: Caribou, musk oxen, Arctic Hares, seals, ptarmigan, lemmings. Arctic wolves eat all their prey, also its bones and fur
Conservation status: common. They still live in the whole of its original range, because local conditions are too extreme for humans.
Interesting facts: mother gives birth to some 2-3 pups in May. Pups are born almost black as they get older, colour of their fur turns to white. Adults are completely white, even in summer | arctic wolves live in the pack of some 7-10 members. Only alpha male and alpha female mate | arctic wolves have shorter ears and nose than other wolves species. They also have thicker fur, shorter legs | they do not run too fast, their advantage is persistence

Question: how can you tell the difference between a male and a female wolf?
Reply
:iconwoxys:
woxys Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011
it is easy - I always recognize Atila, the male :) and two other oldest wolves are females :)

:3 As do I, and many of my friends as well. Just last night we were discussing the wolves featured in both your's and Allerlie's galleries.

Well my friends and I do a wolf roleplay, realistically. And one of my friend's had written down that his wolf's parents were Lobo and Boja, so thinking that I had struck gold I asked him about it. Turns out that many of my friends and I share common interest in you and Allerlie's photography of the wolves, as we do adore the creatures. And also, just so you do know that when we used the names we credited them to you and Allerlie because without you two we wouldn't have known about the majestic canines.

Do you mind if I use this in a manipulation for the front cover of my novel? It portrays the two main characters perfectly! Credit will be given!

I found out I couldn't use it for that, due to one of the wolves being black, and the other being silver. When doing wolf manipulations, it is really hard to recolor a white wolf to be any other color. =/. But I will still use it in one of my "just for fun" manipulations. =).
