Original Painting Medium: Graphite Pencil
Scientific Name: Canis lupus
Region: Northern hemisphere
Wolves work together in order to catch large prey such as herbivores: elk, moose and caribou, but will also hunt rodents, rabbit, squirrels and smaller prey on their own. Working together improves their success rate, but they may also go for many days without a kill.
Wolves are mainly meat eaters, carnivores, but they also enjoy a variety of other foods such as berries and other fruits, as well as worms, grubs and vegetation. To avoid having their food stolen by other predators and to also avoid being attacked, wolves will consume their food very quickly.
My wolf drawing was produced for the book, ‘A New Era for Wolves and People’ by Dr. Marco Musiani.
