    Where Wolves Live Their Habitat, Climate, and Landforms

  • Food, Food!Wolves are carnivores (meat eaters).Wolves eat rabbit, mice, beaver, and birds.To feed a whole pack it needs to kill a larger prey like deer, elk, moose and more.Sometimes wolves pounce on their prey.

  • Prey and PredatorsAdult wolves dont have any predators except humans because they are shot and killed.Pups (babies) have more predators than the adult wolf. Their predators are badgers, Fisher cats, bears , and raptors.But many sicknesses come for both wolf and pup

  • Behavior-How it ActsGrey wolves are very nice animals.Grey wolves will only get violent if someone comes near its pups or territory.Some people misunderstand wolves for mean animals.

  • Behavioral AdaptationsWolves are very social animals, they live in packs. This helps them survive by the group protecting each other.When their isn't a lot of food wolves will eat rodents and they will also eat dead animals that are left. This helps make sure they always have food.Wolves roam around at night and have to rely on their sense of smell to find their prey. Their smell is much better than humans.Wolves can adapt to mostly any habitat except Tropical Rainforests and arid deserts

  • Physical AdaptationsCoat made of wool to keep moisture out and keep them warm.Large paws have fleshy pads and claws for traction and widen to help them in the snowWolves have long legs to run away from predatorsTheir color helps them camouflage in their habitat.
