Canis lupus

Number 0079

Here’s a gray wolf for Jay. The gray wolf is the largest of the canines. It was once prevalent throughout the world; now it’s restricted mainly to northern North America, Asia, and Europe, with a few small populations surviving in western Europe.


  1. Love the blog, which I found through Carel. But I think you’ll find there are a lot more wolves in Siberia east of the Urals than in Arctic canada, which has more than the US.

  2. Hi Steve,

    Thanks—you’re right. The wolf fell victim to the mammalthon’s lax research standards. I’m going to edit the post to make it correct. I’m glad you like the site!
