Their packs have about 10-12 wolves, but can hold up to 36 members. The Gray Wolf travels up to 12 miles a day. You can tell who the alpha male is by body language such as, crouching, chin touching, and rolling over to show their stomach. The Gray Wolf is on extension list.

After years of selective breeding and taming, the hunters finally came across some wolves that were able to listen to commands and do what they were ordered to do. These wolves did not look like the first ones with which humans came into contact. Their size, coloring, senses and even the length of their coat or swimming ability reflected the environment in which they lived. These environments could have ranged from anything since hunters do not stay in one place for very long. These wolves probably did not reflect their gray ancestors much anymore. The color of their coat could have become brown, black, or even yellow depending on where they were taken.

A single pack may contain animals that are black, shades of gray-brown, and white. Wolves in the heavily forested areas of eastern North America are more uniform in color. They are often a grizzled gray-brown like some German shepherd dogs. This color variation is a good example of natural selection, which enables those animals best suited to a particular environment to survive. On the arctic islands, where much of the ground is snow-covered for at least nine months of the year, being white is a distinct advantage, so wolves in the Arctic may be nearly white. In the mottled grey, green, and brown world of the eastern forests the normal coat of the wolf is an effective camouflage. As a wolf moves stealthily, or rests, it blends into the background and is hardly seen. Wolves in the Arctic have extremely dense under-fur, which insulates them against rigorous winters. Another adaptation to environment is their habit of hunting in packs, or groups, which enables them to kill large animals.

Rare Gray Wolf Shot Down in Utah A protected female gray wolf has been shot and killed in Utah by a hunter who claims to have mistaken it for a coyote. DNA tests conducted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have confirmed that it is the same wolf, which wore a radio collar, that had been previously spotted in the Grand Canyon in Arizona—the first gray wolf seen so far south in at least 70 years. After being slaughtered in the tens of thousands back in the 1920s and ‘30s, the species had never been seen south of Colorado until this female—named "Echo" in a student contest—had been spotted in Arizona in the fall of 2014.
