Arctic wolf facts national geographic
The Arctic Wolf: Living with the Pack by L. David MechThis book is an absolute must for any Wolf-fan and is worth every penny of the price. Although it is easy to read, it stands out mostly for its spectacular images of a pack of Arctic wolves in the Arctic. To my knowledge this book is the first one with photographs of the truly wild wolves in such abundance. Many people do not know but most of the photos taken of wolves are from wild- or game parks (or whatever they are called) and therefore the photographed wolves often look very smooth.
Not this book, we see photos of puppies to adults. It is not hidden or glossed over. Everything is shown: disheveled fur, dirty faces, bloody muzzles drawn fresh from a prey, the icy wind whistling around the ears of them, in short:
What you get to see are wolves how they are and not how you want them to be.

Wolves: Fact and Fiction
All rights reserved. Wolves are legendary because of their spine-tingling howl, which they use to communicate. A lone wolf howls to attract the attention of his pack, while communal howls may send territorial messages from one pack to another. Some howls are confrontational. Much like barking domestic dogs, wolves may simply begin howling because a nearby wolf has already begun. Wolves are the largest members of the dog family.
All rights reserved. Wolves work together to hunt, raise their young, and protect their territory.

The Arctic is located at the northernmost part of our planet. Great for teachers, homeschoolers and parents alike! Imagine that! Despite the freezing-cold temperatures, approximately four million people call this wintery wonderland home! This was proof that the enormous ice sheet rests on water and not land. The Arctic is home to lots of wonderful wildlife, including polar bears, Arctic foxes, walruses, seals and whales! Well, male narwhals have a straight tusk projecting from the front of their head that can grow to over 3m in length!
