Name: Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos)
Location: Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland

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

Ah, yeah! I just looked at the eyes and realized it is Atila. He usually seems a little brighter white.

I would love to meet him someday! :) Doubt I'll ever have the chance to visit the Czech Republic, but it would be pretty cool if I could.

An awesome capture of him. I love the contrast between the white fur and the dark background and also his expression. :heart:

This picture is how I imagine one of my werewolf characters (who's an Alpha) stoic and overseeing all that he has to worry for and care about.

So wait, there's alpha and what? There was a second one.

aidan-wulver Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That was the alpha of the Iberian gray wolf pack. This is the alpha of the arctic wolf pack.

I was talking about a different wolf, I already figured it out anyway. Thanks for helping though.

The picture she posted earlier was of the previous alpha, who'd grown too weak to hold his position

The other wolves started acting cruel to him, so the keepers put him to sleep in everyone's best interest
