all about ARCTIC WOLVES!
The White Wolves
Year-round white coats and slightly shorter noses and ears distinguish Arctic wolves from other wolves.
They live along the northern edge of the North American continent and the eastern and northern shores of Greenland (Maps). Parts of this area become snow free in summer and support enough plants to feed musk-oxen, caribou, Arctic hares and lemmings - the main food supply for the white wolves.
The High Arctic (75°-90°N) is mostly unsettled by people, and as a result, Arctic wolves have not been hunted like other wolves. This makes them mostly unafraid of humans. Rather than run, they often just stand and gaze.
