The average wolf pack size is 5-8 wolves, but can be up to 30 or more.


A wolf packs territory size varies depending on where they live. For example in Minnesota it is 25 to 150 square miles. In Alaska and Canada it is 300 to 1,000 square miles.

The average travel speed for a pack is 5 miles per hour.

Wolves are good swimmers. On several occasions they have been seen swimming out to islands in lakes, and even across large rapid rivers during winter.

Wolves constantly move around their territory and can easily cover 40-50 kilometers in a day.

Wolves howl to each other and to other Wolves, simply as a way of communication.

Wolf Facts

Contrary to popular belief, wolves do not howl more at the full moon (except maybe for werewolves).

The Vikings wore wolf skins and drank wolf blood to take on the wolf’s spirit in battle. They also viewed real wolves as battle companions or hrægifr (corpse trolls).

Wolves are the largest members of the Canidae family, which includes domestic dogs, coyotes, dingoes, African hunting dogs, many types of foxes, and several kinds of jackals.

A wolf pup’s eyes are blue at birth. Their eyes turn yellow by the time they are eight months old.

Wolves have about 200 million scent cells. Humans have only about 5 million. Wolves can smell other animals more than one mile (1.6 kilometers) away.

Wolves run on their toes, which helps them to stop and turn quickly and to prevent their paw pads from wearing down.

Though many females in a pack are able to have pups, only a few will actually mate and bear pups. Often, only the alpha female and male will mate, which serves to produce the strongest cubs and helps limit the number of cubs the pack must care for. The other females will help raise and “babysit” the cubs.
