Let's start with what wolves are. Domestic dogs originally came from the wolf. That's right, even a powder-puff Poodle or a tiny Yorkshire Terrier originally came from a wolf. The domestic dogs that seem to resemble the most like wolves are Huskies. Wolves come in a variety of breeds and colors. The most common wolf is the Grey Wolf. These canines aren't your common dogs either. Some people see a wolf and think "Those are sooooo cuuuute!! They look just like John/Jane Doe's dog ♥" Wolves are not, and I repeat, ARE NOT pets!! This beautiful creatures may look like a dog, but they are not tame and dangerous to have as pets if you do not know what you're doing! These canines are to be out in the wild, not in the home!
Let's go over the physique of the wolf. Here's a size comparison between a grey wolf and a coyote:
Wolves are known for having golden eyes and pierce through the darkness of the night. They are nocturnal animals. You can see them during the day, but at night is when it's time to hunt. They look similar to dogs, in that they have fur, a tail, four legs, two ears, two eyes, and canine teeth. Their senses are off the charts when it comes to smell and hearing. Colors are a variety of grey, black, white, red, and brown. They live in packs, which are also a sort of families. Usually a pack has around nine wolves, but the number of wolves in a pack is a variety from four ~ fifteen wolves in the same pack! They live in dens; they typically look like this:
The percentage of married couples, for Christians and non-Christians, is %50 end in divorce. That's a really large number if you think about it! Wolves, on the other hand, are mates for life. We married couples should learn from animals such as wolves. A litter can have around one ~ six cubs. The hierarchy of the pack is fascinating too.
