(Canis lupus arctos)
Arctic wolves are easy to tell apart from other wolves due to their striking, almost completely snow-white winter fur. They live in the icy north of North America and on Greenland and are perfectly adapted to the local environment.
With up to 6,500 hairs per cm, a very thick coat protects him from icy temperatures. Even the paws are covered with fur.
Legs and snout are significantly shorter than those of other wolf species, the ears are small and round. Thus, the cold has less "attack surface".
Did you know that...
... polar wolves have the strongest cohesion of all wolf species,
... individual wolves in the Arctic would have no chance of survival
... and that up to 30 animals form a pack and thus significantly larger preys can be overwhelmed?
