Wolf (Canis lupus, Linnaeus 1758) is a mammal of the Canidae family. Large carnivores (surpassed only by the brown bear in Europe) is the largest wild canid of today. Once abundant and with a wide geographical distribution, is now confined to a small portion of their ancestral territory.
The wolf selects its habitat depending mainly on the availability of food and human attitudes. Shows great adaptability in practically all habitats of the northern hemisphere. The space used by a pack varies depending on the availability and abundance of prey.
