In northern Minnesota, wolves average eating about one full-size deer a month. But they're not like us...they don't get to eat on a regular schedule. So they eat whenever they can catch a deer. They might get two deer in one week and then go a couple months before finding another deer.

Actually Jarett, wolves are still on the endangered species list. After a series of lawsuits, they have been "relisted" recently. Now, the Fish and Wildlife Service is working on ways to cooperate with some states that have wolves (MN, WI, MI, MT, ID, WY) to find a way to manage them off of the list.

Also, wolves give birth late-April to early-May in the midwest. The typically live to be about 6-8 years old in the wild here too. In Yellowstone National Park, they may only live to be 4-5 on average. In captivity, wolves may live to be 12-15 years old.

wolves can only be born in the early of the year. That means that from febuary-april is the only time wolf cubs and be conceved then from 60-63 days the wolf cubs are born. A wolf only live to be about 11 in the wild but in captivity they live to be 14. also if you saw a wolf in the zoo it would appear lazy but they aren't a wolf usually sleeps during the day and is active during the night. A wolf in captivity has nothing to do because they do not have to worry about hunting because they are feed on a regular bacis. So that is why a wolf is not lazy.

Well Calvin Pring a wolf can run up to 40 miles per hour. Also they mostly live in canada but after a great effort they have been brought back to the us. Now that they are prospuring they are off the endangered list. I love wolves for there beauty and grace but they are also a strong animal. They eat rabbits deer elk and other animals in the mountains. i hope you injoyed these small facts about wolves!

Hello,

I'm not sure why you think wolves are mean but, keep in mind that wolves do not think and feel emotions the same way humans do. They live on instinct and their instinct helps them survive by killing prey, maintaining pack structure and keeping their territories safe from intruders. We as humans sometimes look at those behaviors as being "mean" but, for a wolf, it's a way of life.

Hi there,

Wolves howl more often at night because that is when they are the most active. They prefer to be inactive during the warmer parts of the day to stay more comfortable. Wolves don't sweat like we do! When they become active, their time may be filled with social activity between pack members, hunting or traveling. All of these activities may include howling.

i have cherokee indian blood running through my veins. my ancestors loved wolves with a passion to where they were like part of the family. they are very beautiful ceratures and need to be protected. they are growing smaller every year from hunters, poachers, and those who kill them for the fun of it. it needs to stop. i think that people in the future should be able to see wat amazing creatures wolves are.

My name is Jess and I work at the International Wolf Center in Ely, MN. Wolves often avoid humans and teach their young to avoid them as well. People in wolf country learn to live with wolves and other wildlife such as bears, cougars, moose or deer. As long as garbage or food is kept secure, pets are not left outside unattended and wildlife is not encouraged to come close, humans and wildlife can coexist in relative peace.

Hi,

Wolves in general do not see humans as a food source. However, wolves may lose their fear of humans if they are fed or encouraged to come closer to humans. This may lead to a wolf hurting someone.

Hi Maddie,

I'm glad you think wolves are interesting -- I think so too! Here are some interesting facts:
• Wolves usually live in a family group called a "pack," which usually includes parents and their younger kids.
• A wolf mom usually gives birth to pups one time each year, and the pups are born weighing one pound and unable to hear or see.
• Minnesota has the most wolves by far of any other state in the lower 48.

You'll find lots more interesting facts about wolves on the International Wolf Center's Web site. Click on LEARN, then on KIDS, and you'll find some fun activities, too.

I love wolves soooo much, but i've never seen a real one in my life. I really want to find a close place to asheville NC that lets you see real wolves, their habbitat, and their behaviour! Wolves, and all animals are my life! I'm glad the good lord gave us wolves, and all animals, aren't you? I have a few facts: In Alaska, wolves are found almost every 25 miles.
2#: packs can have from 2 to 20 pack members. 3#: wolves are related to dingoes, jackals, and coyotes. 4#: wolves ears and eyes show their emotions most: ears laid back=mad ears forward=hearing something or alerted. I love wolves sooo much!!!
