Wolves are intelligent, sensitive, highly social creatures.  These largest members of the dog clan measure 5 to 61/2 feet from nose to tip of tail and may weigh more than 100 pounds.  They were once found from Greenland to Vancouver, from the Arctic to Mexico, occuring in each of the 48 contiguous states.  Long the victim of an undeserved reputation as a vicious killer, the now endangered wolf has been reduced to a small fraction of its former range.

Wolves have one of the most elaborate social orgaizations of all animals.  They live in packs, cohesive units led by a dominant male and female who remain mated for life.  The pups are born in the spring and are treated warmly by their elders, from whom they learn survival and social skills.
