Arctic Wolves, King of the Arctic

December 21, 2019

PROMPT: Open Prompt

    In the coldest parts of the world, in the northern hemisphere, lives the majestic arctic wolf. With only 200 left in the wild, these creatures are a rare and beautiful sight.
    
    The arctic wolf, scientifically known as canis lupus arctos, is part of the canidae family and lives in packs of 7 to 20 wolves. A mother arctic wolf may have 2 to 3 pups at a time, and raises them for about 2 years. 

    With a life span of 7 to 10 years, arctic wolves spend most of their lives raising their pups and hunting. An arctic wolf's excellent sense of smell and amazing hearing helps them to hunt oxen, arctic hare, and occasionally, caribou, lemmings, and seals.

    An arctic wolf can run up to 38mph, smell 1.75 miles away, and hear things 10 miles away!

    With no natural predators, the arctic wolf is truly the king of the arctic!
