Baby Wolf

Baby Wolf
Gray Wolf (Canis lupus)
This large dog-like animal is usually gray but can vary from silvery-white to black.  At maturity its length is approximately 40-52 inches.  Although maligned through the ages as a vicious predator, the wolf might better be admired for its complex social organization.  The leader, or alpha male, appears to control the pack's activities.
