Gray wolf territories in the lower 48 states may be less than 100 square miles while territories in Alaska and Canada can range from about 300 to 1,000 square miles or more.Red wolf territories in northeastern North Carolina vary in size, but most are estimated to range between 38 to 87 square miles. Wolves breed once a year in late winter or early spring depending on where they live.Exceptions are nomadic wolves whose prey is migratory such as the tundra wolves that follow the caribou herds on their annual treks over huge distances.Territory size is highly variable and depends on a number of factors such as prey abundance, the nature of the terrain, climate and the presence of other predators including other wolf packs. The use of molecular genetic research on wolves is suggesting that there may be two more species of wolf in the world. Two other members of the canine family are considered to be wolves by some researchers and other species by other researchers.
They interbreed where their ranges overlap so that their populations tend to blend together rather than form distinctive boundaries.We recommend that you explore the Learn section of this Web site for more comprehensive information including the “Books and Videos About Wolves” section under Basic Wolf Information. What are the main differences between red wolves and gray wolves? (See Wolves: Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation – Chapter 9). All species and subspecies of wolves are social animals that live and hunt in families called packs, although adult wolves can and do survive alone. Other researchers have presented strong evidence that the eastern timber wolf (Canis lupus lycaon), may be a distinct species, the eastern wolf (Canis lycaon). Some scientists question whether the Ethiopian or Abyssinian wolf (Canis simensis) is a true wolf or a jackal.
Wolf packs are generally largest in late autumn when the nearly-grown pups are strong enough to hunt with the adults.
